In the land of Batges at the gates of Pauillac, Château Lynch Bages is a property that has marked the history of the Médoc. While the Bages terroir has been known for its quality since the 16th century, it was only in the 18th century that it became famous. With an Irishman by the name of Thomas Lynch at the helm of the estate, Château Lynch-Bages was recognised at the Universal Exhibition in Paris. The estate was acquired by the J-M Cazes family right after the Second World War. Château Lynch-Bages is today considered one of the most important references of the Pauillac appellation.
Planted in the Garonnais gravel soils of Pauillac, the 100-hectare vineyard of Château Lynch-Bages is today under the direction of Nicolas Labenne. Satellite technologies are employed for accurate plot division of the vineyard, as a way to preserve the wine heritage of the property. The homogeneous geology of the soil allows for a good supply of water to the vine in an area where the climate is moderate.
While the heavy rainfall in winter replenished the water reserves of the vineyard, the mild weather during the spring favoured the development of the vines. Despite a few rainy days and a drop in temperatures at the end of April, the vineyard cycle was 3 weeks ahead of schedule. The good climatic conditions of May favoured an even flowering. The dry and sunny summer was characterised by great thermal amplitudes, ensuring the optimal ripening of the grapes. In mid-August, some stormy days helped the fruit ripen. The hot, dry conditions that followed allowed for the harvest of small, perfectly concentrated grapes.
Vinification and ageing
The Château Lynch-Bages 2020 is the first vintage vinified at the estate's new facilities. The wine was aged for a period of 18 months in French oak barrels, of which 75% were new oak barrels.
The Château Lynch-Bages 2020 is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (31%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and Petit Verdot (5%).
