history
Situated on the outskirts of Pauillac, overlooking the Gironde estuary, the Lynch-Bages vineyard (1855 Grand Cru Classé) stretches over a beautiful gravelly hilltop. Formerly owned by the illustrious Lynch family, of Irish descent, the estate was acquired by the Cazes family in 1939.
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.
