Bordeaux Blend: Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Muscadelle

A small quantity (under 1,000 cases) of white wine is made at Lynch Bages.
The 2022 is 67% Sauvignon Blanc, 22% Semillon and 11% Muscadelle. Very small production.

Vivid white flower aromatics, here the stone fruits are clearly ripe and edging towards exotic mango and pomegranate, with subtle gunsmoke edging and slate texture. The team passed through the vineyard in successive times to ensure bunches came in as soon as they were ripe, and ensured reductive winemaking in individually temperature-controlled barrels to keep emphasis on fruit and aromatics. It's gourmet, with the texture and flesh that is a signature of the vintage, but never less than enjoyable. 94 Jane Anson.

The 2022 Blanc de Lynch-Bages, tasted two weeks after bottling, jumps from the glass with vibrant grapefruit, lemon curd, and white peach scents with hints of honeysuckle, lime blossom, and chalk dust. The medium-bodied palate vibrates with citrus energy, with a racy backbone and chalky finish. 93 Lisa Perrotti-Brown.

The 2022 Blanc de Lynch-Bages is bright and nicely focused, with tons of Sauvignon Blanc aromas and flavours driving the blend. Citrus, white flowers, mint, chalk and tomato leaf are very nicely delineated. The 2022 has just been bottled, but its freshness is notable. 92 Antonio Galloni, Vinous.
