The 2018 Blanc de Lynch Bages is showing a little reduction, opening out to notions of warm peaches, passion fruit and gooseberries plus suggestions of honeysuckle, coriander seed and chalk dust. Medium-bodied, the palate is completely filled with tropical and citrus flavors plus a racy backbone, finishing long with a touch of chalkiness.

A lively thyme note pierces the core of white peach and white asparagus flavors. Offers a racy edge, with jasmine and white peach details in reserve. Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle.

Just picked honeysuckle, orange rind, Granny Smith apples and vanilla are a treat to smell. Packed with citrus on the palate, the lemon chiffon finish is perfect for current drinking. The wine is a blend of 59% Sauvignon Blanc, 21% Semillon, and 20% Muscadelle.

Description

Born in 1990, "Blanc de Lynch-Bages" is the result of the assembly of the three traditional white grape varieties of the Bordeaux appellation, planted on about eight parcels of the historic land of Lynch-Bages. The fresh fruit flavors of Sauvignon Blanc, combining especially blackcurrant bud, grapefruit and exotic fruits combine the aromas of dried or candied fruit and white flowers of Semillon and Muscadelle.

The fermentation and aging in oak barrels, used accurately, give the wine of fine woody and vanilla notes involved in aromatic complexity. On the palate, Blanc de Lynch-Bages combines freshness and vigor to a seat at the same time round, ample and elegant. Since 2006, an increased selection work in the vineyards reinforces its liveliness and promote its fruity and floral notes. Intra-plot selection at harvest and preventing the oxidation of berries before pressing help preserve aromas and harmonious wine aging. In his youth, Blanc de Lynch-Bages reveals bright and explosive.

Sauvignon Blanc, which is then expressed fully, gradually gives way to flavors of dried apricots, candied fruit and hazelnut, cleanest Semillon. He kept throughout his life an invigorating freshness and a long finish, typical of the great white wines of Bordeaux.
