Château Lynch Bages

Situated on the Bages plateau, one of the finest gravelly rises in the appellation, this château, owned by the Cazes family for nearly 100 years is always one of the most popular amongst Bordeaux drinkers. Aged in 75% new oak, this is a classic Lynch Bages.

Tasting Notes

Opaque, with a delicious intensely concentrated bouquet. The palate is brimming with cassis, finely balanced with gripping tannins and a powerful finish.

Food Matches

Pair with spiced lamb shanks, or a Lancahire hotpot with black pudding and a red wine coulis.

Press Comments

"This has nice weight and intensity, with a solid core of plum, blackberry and cassis that's offset by a racy, spicy frame. Very sleek through the finish, with latent depth in reserve." Wine Spectator's 2011 Top-Scoring Red Bordeaux, James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, April 5, 2012
