Michel Lynch


+ Add a winery image

Michel Lynch is a line of wines produced by Jean-Michel Cazes, current owner of Cinquième Cru (Fifth Growth) Château Lynch Bages, in Paulliac, France. Michel Lynch is named for the 18th century founder of the Lynch Bages estate, a pioneer in Bordeaux winemaking who, among many other accomplishments, innovated the de-stemming process that became standard in area viticulture. Michel Lynch is a brand created as affordable wines one can sip as they wait for their Ch. Lynch Bages to mature in the cellar. Grapes are still sourced from top quality Bordeaux vineyard sites, combining traditional methods with modern touches.

  • Wanting to refresh my memory on certain French vintages in the Rhône Valley I came across (as I often do) the Robert Parker Vintage Chart.  Parker includes vintages from 1970 through 2010 on his website and scores them on the usual 100 point scale.  He claims that scores of 70-79 are "average" while those of 80-89 are "above average to excellent...
