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.
