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

Wow - this is a seriously impressive 2021, with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot yielded at a small 32hl/ha . The proportion of Merlot softening the richness and robustness of the wine’s firm tannin structure. The overall impression of this year’s Lynch is muscle, richness and power, overlaid with an impressive sweet and ripe character of fruit - almost opulent. Deeply impressive!

Vinification

The first wine from Lynch-Bages is drawn off into split stave-wood oak barrels with optimum aromatic capacity, made by reputed barrel-makers, before being aged in the cellars for 18 months in 75% new oak. The winemaker's skilled craft involves regular racking and fining for harmonisation before the wines are bottled at the château and aged.
