Michel Lynch Nature Red AOC Bordeaux
Michel Lynch (Famille JM Cazes) - Bordeaux
100% Merlot
Born in 1754, Michel Lynch devoted his life to impro­ving the wines on his Lynch-Bages property. A shrewd wine producer, he was one of the prime movers in the viticultural advances at the end of the 17th century, in particular with the early trials of de-stemming (sepa­rating the stalk and pips) before fermentation, which subsequently became widespread in Médoc. Two centuries later, his memory lives on in the name Château Lynch-Bages. And in 1986 the vineyard’s owner, Jean-Michel Cazes, created a new range of quality wines that also bears his name. Michel Lynch is a selection of wines that faithfully reflect the full diversity and wealth of Bordeaux’s vineyards. They are wines intended for amateurs wanting to immediately enjoy a wine embodying the finesse and richness typical of the region.

2019 was marked by a cool, rainy spring, with the vegetation getting off to a slow start. The damp weather, along with two light hailstorms, resulted in uneven flowering at the end of April. This was followed by an extremely hot, dry summer, which allowed the grapes to develop well and in very healthy conditions. Rain at the beginning of August was beneficial to the plants, leading to an even onset of ripening, a sign of good quality. Finally, the weather at the beginning of September was ideal; mild, with cool nights.
