Description

The character and elegance of a Pauillac Grand Cru Classé

The estate

Located at the gates of Pauillac, Château Lynch-Bages is an estate that has left its mark on the history of the Médoc. Although the terroir of Bages has been known since the 16th century, it was not until the 18th century that it gained renown. Headed by the son of an Irish citizen by the name of Thomas Lynch, Bages was recognised at the Universal Exhibition in Paris. Acquired by the J-M Cazes family on the eve of the Second World War, Château Lynch-Bages is one of the finest references in the Pauillac appellation.

In a constant quest for excellence and innovation, in 2006 Château Lynch-Bages carried out a new plot arrangement, breaking down 90 of the original cadastral plots into 180 to 200 sub-plots. The 2020 vintage was the first to be made in the brand new facilities at Château Lynch-Bages. Designed by architect Chien Chung (Didi) Pei, internationally renowned for his refined architectural style, the new vat room and ageing cellar are state-of-the-art tools designed to bring out the very best in the terroir of this emblematic Pauillac estate.

The vineyard

Château Lynch-Bages 2022 is a Pauillac wine produced from a 105-hectare vineyard planted with Garonne gravel. The vineyard is divided into plots using satellite technology to preserve the estate's genetic heritage. The homogeneous geology of the terroir ensures a good water supply for the vines in an area with a moderate climate.

The vintage

This year was marked by extreme weather conditions, from a cold winter to a hot, dry summer. However, the vines managed to adapt and produce an exceptional vintage. The vegetative cycle was precocious throughout the year. The grapes reached a top level of ripeness.

Winemaking and ageing

Hand-picked with selective sorting in the vineyard and on tables. Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 75% of which were new.

Blend

Château Lynch-Bages 2022 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (66%), Merlot (28%), Petit Verdot (3%) and Cabernet Franc (3%).
