Château Lynch-Bages

The Château Lynch-Bages is one of those illustrious properties that have contributed to the reputation of the great wines of Pauillac.

Located on the land of "Batges", a gravelly hillock overlooking the Gironde estuary, its history begins in the 17th century when it was owned by Thomas Lynch, a Bordeaux merchant of Irish origin. It was at that time called the "Lynch cru" and remained in the family until 1824.

In 1855, the Château Lynch-Bages obtained the title of Fifth Grand Cru Classé in the famous classification of Médoc wines for the Paris World Fair.

His modern history has been written by the Cazes family, which still owns it. In 1939, Jean-Charles Cazes, who already owned Château Les Ormes de Pez at Saint-Estèphe, bought Domaine and breathed new life into it by raising its standard. When he died in 1972, his grandson Jean-Michel Cazes took over the reins and gradually, thanks to numerous technical renovations and by surrounding himself with the right people, he was able to produce a wine on a par with the great Pauillac. Since 2006, it is his son Jean-Charles who manages it, always with one objective in mind, that of producing the most precise wines possible, marked with the imprint of the Cazes.

Description Château Lynch-Bages 2022.

The 2022 vintage was ahead of schedule at every stage of the growth cycle, until the harvest.

The climatic conditions allowed the different grape varieties to reach perfect maturity in an excellent sanitary state.

The wines have a high concentration of anthocyanins and very ripe red fruit aromas.

They are particularly rich and have impressively mature tannins.

Nicolas Labenne, technical director, May 2023:

"With its deep garnet colour and purple hues, Château Lynch-Bages 2022 displays a rich aromatic palette of black and red fruits (blackcurrant,

Morello cherry...) topped by spicy notes and is marked by impressively mature tannins and remarkable acidity."
