Chateau Lynch-Bages Blanc De Lynch Bages 2020
Born in 1990, "Blanc de Lynch-Bages" is the fruit of joining the three white varietals of the Bordeaux appellation, planted on some eight parcels of the historical Lynch-Bages terroir
Grape Varietals & Origins: 50% Sauvignon, 33% Sémillon, 17% Muscadelle
Taste Profile: Adding to with the fresh fruit flavours of Sauvignon Blanc, including cassis buds, grapefruit and exotic fruit, flavours of dried or candied fruit and white flowers of Sémillon and Muscadelle mingle. The fermentation and aging in barrels, used precisely, give the wine fine woody and vanilla notes, which contribute to their aromatic complexity
In its youth, Blanc de Lynch-Bages is lively and explosive. Sauvignon Blanc, as it comes into full expression, gradually gives way to aromas of dried apricots, candied fruit and nuts, more specific to Sémillon. Throughout its life it maintains an exhilarating freshness and a long finish, typical of the great white wines of Bordeaux.
Winemaking Process: Regular stirring of the lees on oak barrels during 6 months (50% new oak)
