Château Lynch-Bages was owned by the Lynch family for three quarters of a century. They descended from John Lynch, a young Irishman from Galway who was chased out of his country in 1691. In the 18th century, Count Jean-Baptiste Lynch, mayor of Bordeaux, inherited the estate and handed over management to his brother Michel Lynch, who was also mayor of Pauillac during the French Revolution. Jean-Charles Cazes, highly respected in the Médoc for his experience in viticul- ture and winemaking, bought the property in 1934. With his son André, he devoted all his energy to Lynch-Bages for more than 35 years. In 1974, his grand-son Jean-Michel Cazes set about restructuring and managing the estate and recently, in 2006, handed over the running of the property to his son Jean-Charles. Read less

One of the finest wines I have ever tasted. This great wine is full bodied and its very appealing to the pallet. I would highly recommend the 1961 Chateau Lynch Bages for dinner anytime. This one of the world's great wines and I want another bottle. Served with Beef Wellington or Beef Stroganov really does this meal proud. I would highly recommend it.

Smooth-textured, almost sweet in its fruity flavors, with earthy, leathery accents that are intriguing and typical for Lynch-Bages. May be past its prime, but not by much; still packs a lot of pleasure. Drink through 2000.--1961 Bordeaux horizontal. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1961 Lynch Bages 750ml
