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.

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 and Semillon produced balanced, fleshy and aromatic juices.
The 2020 vintage, with its beautiful pale color with silver reflections, reveals an intense nose with aromas of exotic fruits and citrus zests.The palate is full-bodied and fresh, with a nice mineral note on the finish which brings a nice freshness.
