Château Lynch Bages

Château Lynch-Bages is one of the most important wine estates in the Médoc. It all began in the 17th century when Thomas-Michel Lynch, of Irish origin, acquired the estate from his wife Elisabeth Drouillard, daughter of the wine merchant Pierre Drouillard. The quality of his wines is recognized by all since they are classified among the Fifth Growths of the 1855 classification. Jean-Baptiste Lynch succeeded his father in 1779, but he decided to let his brother Michel take the reins of the estate and the wine production to devote himself to his political career. In 1824, the Jurine family bought the Château and sold it to the merchants Maurice and Henri Cayrou, who remained in the family until 1939. At that time, the Cazes family took possession of the 100 hectares of vines and significantly expanded the vineyard, in particular to start producing white wine in 1990. The know-how of Jean-Charles Cazes, an emblematic figure of the wines of Bordeaux, allowed to raise the wines of Château Lynch-Bages to the same level as some second rank wines.  

Since the early 1970s, the wines of the estate, located on the Bages plateau, have been close to perfection. They are rich, powerful and elegant. You can taste them young or after a few years of keeping.
