Marks and reviews
In the land of Bages at the gates of Pauillac, Chateau Lynch-Bages is a property that has marked the history of the Medoc. While the Bages terroir has been known for its quality since the 16th century, it was only in the 18th that it became famous. With an Irishman by the name of Thomas Lynch at the helm of the estate, Chateau Lynch-Bages was recognized at the Universal Exhibition in Paris. The estate was acquired by the J-M Cazes family right after the Second World War. Chateau Lynch-Bages is today considered one of the most important references of the Pauillac appellation.
Chateau Lynch-Bages produces Pauillac wines from a 110-hectare vineyard that rests on Garonne gravel soils. Satellite technologies are employed for accurate plot division of the vineyard, as a way to preserve the wine heritage of the property. The homogeneous geology of the soil allows for a good supply of water to the vine in an area where the climate is moderate.
Echo de Lynch-Bages is the Second Wine of the prestigious Grand Cru Classe of Pauillac, Chateau Lynch-Bages.
Vinification and aging
