This winery boasts a rich history and a reputation for crafting exceptional wines that capture the essence of the Bordeaux terroir.

Lynch Bages has been under the same ownership since before the Second World War, that of the Cazes family, with Lynch under the stewardship of Jean-Michel Cazes since 1973 who wasted absolutely no time in modernising everything at the chateau having been an engineer in Paris.
Since its inception, Château Lynch-Bages has embodied Bordeaux's finest attributes. The property's story dates back to the late 1700s and has seen the stewardship of successive generations. The name "Lynch-Bages" is a tribute to the Lynch family, who acquired the estate, and "Bages," the village where it resides.
In the mid-20th century, Jean-Michel Cazes played a pivotal role in shaping Lynch-Bages into a modern powerhouse. His daring approach and commitment to quality revitalised the estate, creating wines that resonate with the true character of Pauillac.
Château Lynch-Bages produces a range of wines, including its signature red Bordeaux blend under the same name. This wine is a testament to the vineyards' potential, carefully blending Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Known for its ability to age gracefully, Lynch-Bages wines are a reflection of the land's heritage and the winemaking team's expertise.
With meticulous vineyard care and a thoughtful approach to winemaking, the estate consistently delivers wines that speak of their origins and the passion of those who craft them. Its reputation for innovation and distinction, alongside its unwavering commitment to quality, makes Lynch-Bages a cherished name in the realm of Bordeaux.
