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.
One of the stars of the vintage. Arguably one of the most powerful, muscular and broad-shouldered wines made in 2022, this Lynch shows a dense, tightly constructed and linear style. Packed with rich sweet dark fruits, chewy, powerful and enveloping tannins, a structure that towers above most other Pauillac’s and continues in the glass with notes of pomegranate, blackcurrant, chocolate, menthol and a dusting of chalkiness. Seriously rich, powerful and will be very long lived.
Pair with spiced lamb shanks, or a Lancahire hotpot with black pudding and a red wine coulis
Yields of 35 hl/ha.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.
