Haut Bages Averous Premier 1978

Winemaker's Notes:

"36 Years of Age, directly from Bordeaux with perfect provenance! What you should know about the Haut Bages Averous wine is, it is the original second label of Chateau Lynch Bages composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Château Haut-Bages Averous takes the name of the former, neighboring Pauillac property purchased by André Cazes. Since the late seventies, it has been designated as the second wine of Château Lynch-Bages. The 1978 represents one of the first released vintages of this second wine under the Cazes family. In 2008, the wine changed its name to Echo de Lynch Bages. This wine has 36 years of age and provides a taste of what mature Bordeaux is about. Even with its near four decades of age the wine provides nice color with the telltale bricking-rim. The nose reveals mature claret nuances with leather and mushroom giving way to a selection of notes from the spice rack. For such an old wine the palate still provides some freshness and weight, unfolding with notes of red fruit and spice that work together for a nice finish." - The Zachys Team

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
