Château Lynch-Bages 1999

Although there are records of the Bages territory as far back as the 16th century, the history of wine production in the area really began in the 18th century. From 1749 to 1824, the vineyard was owned by Thomas Lynch, the son of an Irishman from Galway who worked as a merchant in Bordeaux. Thomas Lynch managed the land wisely and produced high quality wines under the name of ''Cru de Lynch''. Later on, Jean ''Lou Janou'' Cazes, a ''Montagnol'' (a term used to describe farmers from the austere upper valleys of Ariège), came to the Médoc to earn a living. In the 1930's, General Félix de Vial, a descendant of the Cayrou family, leased the vineyard to Jean-Charles Cazes, the son of ''Lou Janou'' and a farmer at Château Ormes de Pez in Saint-Estèphe. Cazes went on to purchase both properties in the wake of World War II. Lynch-Bages has been run by the Cazes family ever since.

Château Lynch Bages is located in the Pauillac appellation on a large deep gravel rump "plateau de Bages". This beautiful area has remained virtually unchanged since the sixteenth century. Owned by the Lynch family for three quarters of a century, since 1934 it's another illustrious family of Bordeaux, the Cazes family, who presides with great happiness for three generations to the destiny of Lynch-Bages. Investment men and richness of its soil allows the production of wines eminently generous and deep character.

4/5

This vintage 2013 offers a nice quality. The wine shows a dark red shiny colour. On the nose it is characterised by aromas of black fruits like blackcurrant and blackberry. We also notice notes of toast offering a nice complexity. It is particularly dense and concentrated on the mouth. Balance is perfectly mastered. It expresses on ripe fruits and an elegant woody note. The tannin structure is remarkable, dense and silky. A wine also offering a fine length.

4/5

Located at Pauillac on the ancient villages of Bages, former property of the Lynch family, the 5th Cru Château Lynch-Bages has been for three generations in the hands of the Cazes family that manages its business with great success. On the 90 hectares of pebbles facing the Gironde, Jean-Charles Cazes, grows the majority of the Cabernet Sauvignon to a height, because of which they have been compared to several premier wines. Lynch-Bages is today a reference of the Bordeaux wine, always robust, which makes it difficult for an amateur to not possess several bottles well hidden.


The Château Lynch-Bages experiences several great success stories. After an excellent 2010 vintage, the 2011 proves once again the great quality of this Cru.

The robe of this vintage ist profound, intense and shimmery. The nose surprises with great freshness and intense scents of black berries.
The amateurs of the Cru will get once again their money's worth, with a pure wine and its fine, generous texture and elegant tannins.
The long-lasting finale explodes on fruits and a fine acidity.

Exposed in Pauillac
the fifth Cru Lynch-Bages
is owned since three generations by Family Cazes. On the 100ha long parcel in front of GirondeJean-Charles Cazes,
produces Cabernet Sauvignon. Lynch-Bages
is today a Bordeaux reference, very strong.


This Lynch Bages 2010 is composed of 79% of Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% of Merlot, 2% of Cabernet Franc and 1% of Petit Verdot.
Its colour is dark, intense and very brilliant.
At the nose it is intense and fresh, with aromas of black fruits.
The attack in mouth is pulpy, with good tannins. The finish is gorgeous and persistant.

Château Lynch Bages 2010 it is the classic style of Pauillac ally to the grandiose of a solar vintage.
