Château Lynch-bages

+33 5 56 73 24 00 PAUILLAC, 33250

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. – Description from JelaDragoljevic

  • Château Lynch-Bages Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 1996


    Terrific red plum color in the glass. Some olive hint in the nose. Very good on the tongue. Just the slightest suggestion of black fruit. Then less fruity things--a bit of leather, some dustiness. Completely resolved tannins. Minimal acid. Fairly short finish, This one, while quite enjoyable, might be a bit past its peak. Read More

  • Being aware of price points for most of the other varietals I have always wondered why the Pinot Noirs are always priced way ahead of the other varietals.It is almost impossible to purchase a Pinot Noir at the same price point/quality as a Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20Now I live in a region where both Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington State) and...

    Something of a vegetative nose. Pleasingly light hit of fruitcassis, plumon introduction. Interesting mid-palatesomething like a slatey mineralitythat disappears pretty quickly. Vegetative notes then pop up and just as quickly disappear. Tannins are completely resolved yields a smooth, easy to drink wine. An OK wine, but not a particularly ... Read More

  • VV, just because nobody has tried it before doesn't mean it won't work. Morgan spent a year working as a visiting winemaker at Chateau Lynch-Bages and grew up making Pinot so a Nouveau isn't a reach for him. Read More

  • Château Lynch-Bages Pauillac 1992


    Very pretty garnet color with lots of light coming through. Initially, something of a musty nose, but that seemed to blow off. Initial mouth sensation has lots of earthiness. Just the lightest touch of Cabernet Sauvignon currant fruit. Some tobacco. Still some very serious tannin to the point that I am critical of the balance. The finish, t... Read More

  • GREGT- you are right about Chappellet. At any price point I  have  always thought their value was justified and Keenen as well.I can only assume from your earlier posts that there is limited Bordeaux at value prices where you live, and you are right that many of the better known Bordeaux skyrocketed in price thanks in part to the Chinese. Howeve... Read More

  • I am a life long wine enthusiast with a preference for Bordeaux, particularly if consumed at maturity. I do enjoy wines from other parts of the world but find I like the ones that have a claret style best. I dislike CA/domestic  fruit bombs that seem so prevalent and popular in the U S.My bias toward Bordeaux was probably set when a friend of mi... Read More
