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.

This Château always produces one of Pauillac’s most powerful and muscular wines and 2023 is no different. The nose is a super compote of black cassis, cedar oak and tobacco, brooding and intense. Full bodied, tightly knit and sturdy in structure, on the palate there is a massive concentration of black fruits with tightly woven, finely tuned tannins and a lovely smattering of graphite. A top wine this vintage as well as a very encouraging price reduction!
Pair with spiced lamb shanks, or a Lancahire hotpot with black pudding and a red wine coulis
Yields of 47 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. Alc. 13.7%
