The richness and elegance of a fine Pauillac red wine

The estate

Situated at the entrance of Pauillac, Chateau Lynch Bages is an estate that has left its mark on the history of the Medoc wine region. Although the terroir of Bages has been known since the 16th century, it wasn’t until the 18th century that it gained its recognition. With the son of an Irish citizen named Thomas Lynch at the helm, the Bages wine was recognized at the Universal Exhibition in Paris. Chateau Lynch-Bages became part of the J-M Cazes family on the eve of the Second World War and is one of the finest references among the fine Pauillac wines.

Constantly seeking both excellence and innovation, Chateau Lynch-Bages carried out a new plot division in 2006, breaking down 90 original plots used for the production of wine into 180 to 200 sub-plots. The 2020 vintage is the first vintage to be produced in Chateau Lynch-Bages' brand new infrastructures. Designed by the architect Chien Chung (Didi) Pei, internationally renowned for his sleek architectural style, the new vat room and aging cellar are state-of-the-art facilities designed to enhance the terroir of this iconic Pauillac estate through a skillful vinification process.

Chateau Lynch-Bages watches over a 90-hectare vineyard that rests on Garonne gravel.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Lynch Bages offers up crushed black berries, black cherries and dried herbs with an earthy undercurrent. The medium-bodied palate is firm and taut with lively fruit and a chewy finish.
