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.

Tasting Notes

Dense, powerful with lovely cedar notes giving character to the intense cassis fruit.

Food Matches

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