The Château Lynch-Bages Blanc de Lynch-Bages is wonderfully fresh and lively with aromas of grapefruit, lemon, green apple and white peach. Apricot too. The medium-bodied palate is equally intense, with plenty of acidity and bright, spicy notes, ending pleasantly savory with a long, lively finish. The Blanc de Lynch-Bages is a blend of 70% sauvignon, 20% semillon and 10% muscadelle.

Vineyard for 2020 Château Lynch-Bages Blanc de Lynch-Bages

The founder of Lynch-Bages is the Irish John Lynch who settled in Bordeaux in the 17th century. The village of Bages is home to the château. Since 1933, Lynch-Bages has been run by the Cazes family, an institution in the Médoc and a famous name in the world of wine. Third generation André Cazes was mayor of the municipality of Pauillac from 1947 to 1991. His son Jean-Michel has been running the family domain for several decades. His motto is; "great wine in search of the absolute". Given the appreciation for and status of Lynch-Bages, this 'absolute' has been reasonably achieved. Officially the château has the status of 5th Grand Cru Classé, but unofficially it is counted among the greatest of the Médoc. The other parts of the family business can also be described as very successful. Cordeillan-Bages, winery, hotel and best dining in the surrounding area and restaurant / caterer Le Chapon Fin in Bordeaux are good examples of this. Father André founded the Commanderie du Bontemps de Médoc in the late 1940s and Jean-Michel can call himself the founder of the École du Bordeaux. In short, an eventful family in the world of wine.
