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

Wow! Opaque in the glass, thick and broodingly oily, a hedonistic, powerful and deeply impressive Lynch, with a rigid structure that opens slowly to reveal lush red fruits, integrated oak, seasoned tannins and a generous stone fruit and cassis character. Long, big - heaven. A keeper..

Vinification

The first and second wines from Lynch-Bages are drawn off into split stave-wood oak barrels with optimum aromatic capacity, made by reputed barrel-makers, before being aged in their cellars. Before being enjoyed, they are required to rest for a period of time in order to soften out and fully integrate the aromas imparted from the oak. The winemaker's skilled craft involves regular racking and fining for harmonisation before the wines are bottled at the château and aged.
