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
This wine pays tribute to Michel Lynch, a name that is inextricably linked with the great wines of Bordeaux. Born in 1754, he devoted his life to improving the wines on his estate now known as Château Lynch-Bages. The wine that bears his name has passed through the hands of a renowned winemaking team. It is crafted from a selection of the Bordeaux vineyard’s noblest grapes, which have been harvested at maturity and carefully vinified.
Winemaking
The mild and particularly rainy winter, followed by a wet spring, created a lot of concern but turned out to be a decisive advantage for this vintage! Once the mildew problems had been eliminated, the soft warmth at the end of June provided very favorable conditions for the vineyard’s development. Throughout the sunny summer, the vines had good reserves and has tapped into rich soil. The regular and early flowering, followed by a more spread veraison allowed a homogeneous harvest which took place in the last days of August. With idyllic sanitary conditions and intact fruit, Sauvignon Blanc produced balanced, fleshy and aromatic juices.
Tasting notes
With a beautiful pale and brilliant color with green tints, the 2020 vintage has a very expressive nose with exotic fruits and orange zest aromas. The palate is full-bodied and generous with notes of peaches, pineapple and fresh almonds. The finish is long and very fresh.
