Producer Profile

Château Lynch-Bages, Cru Classé Pauillac

Château Lynch-Bages is a Cinquièmes Cru Classé in Pauillac, founded in 1749 by Thomas Lynch in the villages of Bages. Lynch's father John has emigrated in 1691 from Galway in Ireland to Bordeaux.  The estate changed hands in the nineteenth century and was eventually purchased in the 1930s by Jean-Charles Cazes.  In 1972, his grandson Jean-Michel Cazes took over, followed by his son Jean-Charles. The technical director is Nicholas Labenne.

The 90 hectares are just outside Pauillac itself, with the vineyard on the Bages gravel ridge, looking down on the Gironde, planted to 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.  Around 25,000 cases are made in an average year.   The second wine is 'Echo de Lynch-Bages'.

Construction of a new winery began in 2018 and 2020 is the first vintage to be made in it.
