history
Owner of Chateau Lynch-Bages since 1939, the Cazes family has, over the generations, expanded its range of vineyards and developed a true model of tourism based on a tradition of hospitality. Jean-Charles Cazes models a wine that is quickly recognized. André Cazes, the youngest of his 4 sons, studied law. It was not until the 1960s that he took over the reins of the estate. And like his father before him, his influence will be decisive. He regenerated and enlarged the vineyard, which reached nearly 100 hectares at the end of the 1990s. After studying engineering, André's son, Jean-Michel, returned to Pauillac in 1973. He was accompanied by Thereza, a Portuguese woman from Mozambique, and their first three children, Kinou, Marina and Catherine, soon to be joined by Jean-Charles. Their marriage, made official by André, then mayor of the town, laid the first stone of a resolutely cosmopolitan family history.
Vineyard
A result of the refining of the domaine’s selection of young plants and plots, Pauillac, Château Lynch-Bages’ 3rd wine, was created in 2009. This wine, which has benefitted from the same cultivation practices as those employed across the vineyard and the same level of care than during the winemaking process, is defined by its resounding Pauillac character, typical of its terroir and marked by the predominance of Cabernet Sauvignon. Garonne gravel.
Winemaking
Hand-picked with selective sorting in the vineyard and in the winery. 12 months in one-wine barrels and two-wines barrels.
Tasting notes
With a deep garnet color with purplish-blue hues, this 2017 vintage offers black fruits aromas (blackcurrant, black cherry). With a beautiful freshness, it reveals a supple attack with a good volume. On the palate, tannins are melted and the notes of black and red fruits are enhanced by some spicy touches.
