Owned by the Cazes family for nearly 100 years, this is one of the most popular Châteaux of Bordeaux. This is a classic Pauillac that will repay long term ageing handsomely.

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.

Monumental in stature, with layer after layer of complex black fruits, stewed, mulled and crunchy – showing firmness and yielding tannins balancing perfectly with notes of coconut, oak and spice. This is a great Lynch, balancing both power, weight and structure with a paradoxical lightness and freshness.

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.
