The 2015 Blanc de Lynch Bages, 50% Sauvignon Blanc, 33% Semillon and 17% Muscadelle, matured in 45% new oak. The yields were just 29.8 hectoliters per hectare, because of the dry growing conditions that particularly affected the Sauvignon Blanc. It has an attractive bouquet with scents of lime, gooseberry and beeswax, the oak neatly enmeshed. The palate is fresh and vibrant, harmonious in the mouth with a twist of bitter lemon on the mid-palate, easing down towards the finish with Cornice pear and citrus peel notes. There is very pleasant salinity on the aftertaste that urges you back for another sip. This is an accomplished Blanc de Lynch Bages that should offer several years' drinking pleasure.

A bright and flavorful white with sliced apple, pear and mango follow through to a full body, crisp acidity and lively finish. Lots of white peaches too. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

There's terrific zing and precision here, with tangerine and white peach notes allied to a steely spine and leading to a long fleur de sel finish. Should unwind slowly and will likely do well in the cellar. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Rich, exotically spicy nose. Broad and round. Very flattering and yet tense too. No wonder this wine always does so well at the Southwold tasting! Luxurious. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2019-2028

Lynch’s white comes from a parcel to the west of Pauillac in Saint-Sauveur on a north-facing slope. Spicy and subtly oaked, with a touch of honeyed richness from botrytis, notes of green herbs and cinnamon and a pithy, chalky finish. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2017-2022
