Château Lynch Bages

Classification: Fifth Growth (5ème Cru)

lynch_bages_1.jpg
Château Lynch Bages lies at the gates of the town of Pauillac on one of the finest gravel plateaux in the commune, overlooking the Gironde Estuary. It takes its name from the hamlet of Bages and John Lynch, an Irishman from Galway who was chased out of Ireland in 1691. An Irishman owning a Château is not as strange as it seems – John Lynch was descended from Hugo de Lynch, a comrade of William the Conqueror.

The Cazes family bought the château in 1934 and Jean Michel Cazes now runs the château. Every year since 1989, Jean Michel Cazes asks artist to create an original artwork inspired by the subtlety of Lynch Bages and the 2005 vintage is represented by a painting by Günther Förg.
Château Lynch Bages is one of the best known Médoc estates and has always had strong following in the UK. It is often described as “Poor Man's Mouton” as its price belies its quality – Château Lynch Bages deserves to be in a higher classification.

The vineyards of
Château Lynch Bages cover 175 acres and lie on deep beds of Garonne gravel over chalk, limestone and clay. This enables the roots of the old vines to grow to a depth of 6-8 metres. The grapes grown are 73 % Cabernet-Sauvignon, 15 % Merlot, 10% Cabernet-Franc and 2 % Petit Verdot. There is also a small 11 acre plot planted with the white varieties: 40% Semillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Muscadelle.

Wine Style
The wines of
Château Lynch Bages are well known for their complexity, and combine elegance with a powerful structure. Their suppleness allows them to be drunk after a few years, but they also age incredibly well. The wine is a deep purple colour and is very aromatic having a bouquet of cassis, leather, cedar and spices. They are full bodied, concentrated and succulent.
