Château Lynch-Bages Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Bordeaux Contrôlée Blanc 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

In 1993, when Jean-Charles Cazes became the owner of Lynch-Bages, there were a few white vines, of an undetermined grape variety, in the vineyard close to the main house. For a long time, they were used to supply table fruit to the villagers........until 1978. That year, we decided to do a small harvest for white wine. This miniature production less than 2 barrels was quite successful with our friends, which encouraged us to persevere. In this way, after about ten years, we acquired new experience. In 1987 we planted a white vineyard of 5 hectares, at the entrance to Pauillac, this time respecting the traditional blend of Bordeaux grape varieties : sauvignon blanc, semillon and a little muscadelle.

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
