Château Lynch-Bages is an estate in the Pauillac appellation on the Left Bank of Bordeaux that is classified as Cinquièmes Crus (Fifth Growths) in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.
Its lands date back to the 1500s when the first mention of wines from ‘Batges’ has been found. Then, the area was a collection of plots before these were unified in the early 1700s and created into the Domaine de Bages.
Château Lynch-Bages is another famous Bordeaux wine with an Irish historical connection. John Lynch emigrated to Bordeaux in 1691 and his son Thomas Lynch married into the Drouillard family, taking on the Domaine de Bages in 1750. It was Thomas’s son, Michel Lynch who created ‘Cru de Lynch’, producing excellent wines, pioneering new technology, ingredients and our modern understanding and respect of the terroir. After various owners from 1825 to 1938, the estate has been owned by the Cazes family and now Jean-Charles Cazes since 2007.
The 100 hectares of Château Lynch-Bages benefit from a favourable setting with the surrounding protection of the Gironde River on one side, the Atlantic Ocean on the other, and the Landes forest completing the creation of a perfect viticultural microclimate.
The vineyard on a gravel ridge overlooking the Gironde estuary has a well-drained gravel bed with a limestone sub-strata and produces predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, with a smaller plot producing white Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle.
Lynch Bages is one of the ‘must-have’ classified growths and one of the undisputed pearls of Pauillac. Bigger in structure than many of the wines of the appellation, it is one of the few 5th growths that would qualify, routinely, as an investment wine – and it has more in common in quality terms with the 2nd growths.
