ECHO DE LYNCH BAGES
Château Haut-Bages Averous was the name of the former Pauillac estate acquired by André Cazes in 1976. It was renamed Echo de Lynch-Bages in 2008 vintage in order to affirm its relationship with its parent Grand Cru Classé, the famed Lynch-Bages. The name Echo refers to the nymph from Greek mythology who was deprived of speech by Hera as a punishment for distracting her when Zeus wished to consort with beautiful mortals. As such, although Echo is not the first to speak, it shares the first wine's elegance and character.
Like its big brother, Echo de Lynch-Bages displays the characteristic taste, aromas and length of Pauillac wine. As an echo of the first wine, it receives the same care and attention from the vine to the cellars and is a selection of Lynch-Bages' youngest vines and specific plots (which represent 25% to 40% of the harvest depending on the vintage).
