Other Reviews....
The 2016 Blanc de Lynch-Bages delivers notions of ripe apples, spiced pears and lemon pie with touches of lime zest and crushed rocks. Medium-bodied with super intensity in the mouth, it has a seriously zesty palate and a long refreshing finish.

The 2016 Blanc de Lynch Bages has a delightful brioche-scented bouquet with subtle lime flower aromas and hints of frangipane. The palate is well balanced with a fine thread of acidity. A touch of toffee apple and lychee emerges toward the nicely composed finish. Very fine.

A vivid white with mango, lemon and peach aromas. Exotic yet fresh. Pear drop. Full-bodied, layered and flavorful. Juicy and clean. Always wonderful to drink, but can improve with age.

The light gold-colored 2016 Blanc de Lynch Bages has a classic, honeyed minerality and white grapefruit perfume that’s followed by a clean, medium-bodied, vibrant white that’s already drinking beautifully.

Crisp, fresh, citrus, flowers, lime and green apple notes, with a round, sweet, appealing, crunchy, yellow citrus finish are what you'll find here.

Jeff Leve - The Wine cellar Insider

This offers more proof that the whites in the Médoc have resisted the heat of August. The pH here is 3.01, and certainly the impression in the glass is of beautiful freshness with a creamy mid-palate of white peaches, honeysuckle and gentle citrus sorbet. Fermented at a low temperature in a combination of stainless steel, one year old barrels and 45% new oak with a very light toast, this is very delicate and extremely pretty. A blend of 52% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon and 18% Muscadelle.
