Like its big brother, Echo de Lynch-Bages displays the characteristic taste, aromas and length of Pauillac wines. As an echo of the first wine, it receives the same care and attention from the vine to the cellars. It is the result of a selection of Lynch-Bages' youngest vines and specific plots which represent between 25 to 40 % of the harvest depending on the vintage. Echo de Lynch-Bages is round, soft and seductive in its youth with outstanding potential for bottle age. 2012 vintage delivers classic-style ripe, balanced wines, boasting intense colours and a very decent tannic structure.

Wine SpectatorShows the vintage's austere edge, with alder and iron notes pinching a bit, but the core is solid, featuring dark plum, black cherry and currant notes that have meshed well. A bright sanguine thread runs through the finish. Best from 2017 through 2021.

Wine AdvocateThe second wine of Lynch-Bages, the 2012 Echo is a light to medium-bodied, slightly one-dimensional style of wine with ripe blackcurrant and cherry fruit. It does not offer much depth or body, and its soft, easygoing finish borders on innocuous, but it is pleasant. It should be drunk over the next 5-7 years.
