The Story

The power and elegance of a great Pauillac. Daring, innovative and known for often being the last to harvest, Jean-Charles Cazes defined the style ofLynch-Bages in the 1930's. The wine's distinctive character earns it its place amongst Pauillac's greatest. It combines structure, finesse and elegance. It is generous in its youth and develops more complex aromas with bottle age.

Outstandingly consistent quality

The estate’s reputation as a top quality wine producer took off in 1945 after a series of exceptional vintages. Since then, Lynch-Bages has continued to produce excellent wines, even during years considered difficult in the Bordeaux region. The wine’s deep colour and tannic backbone have become part of its signature style. Jean-Michel Cazes, grandson of Jean-Charles, has worked hard to develop and refine the wine’s supple and smooth structure over the years. Vintage after vintage, the estate’s precise and excellent winemaking techniques have served to firmly establish Lynch-Bages reputation for consistent quality.

Written Notes

Dark purple red with violet hue and black core. Expressive nose, mulberries and blackberries, discreet oak spices, on the palate well structured with ripe tannins, elegant character with persistent finish, good length.
  • 93p
Deep colour. Intense fresh elderberry cassis aromas with liquorice, aniseed notes. Sweet fruited and densely packed with lovely cassis, praline flavours, fine grainy tannins and plentiful new vanilla oak. Finishes firm with lovely mineral length. Very good wine. 96 points
  • 96p
Very deep colour, solid block on the nose, not very yielding, this is immediately silky on the palate, rich dense and impressive core of fruit, very fresh, great ripe tannins here ripe will be a classic Lynch Bages and a definite buy if the price is reasonable. This is a wine that never flatters en primeur, it is always foursquare, impenetrable, and a vintage like this it sings. 93-96/100 2030-2060
