Château Lynch-Bages Pauillac, Grand Cru Classé, Bordeaux - 2007

${symbol}${ activeVariant.price | money }

Lynch-Bages is one of the most cherished of all the classed growths. It lies on a plateau in the west of Pauillac, in the small village of Bages. Its extensive history dates back to the 16th century, with wine records back to the 1700s. It was owned then by Thomas Lynch, son of an Irishman from Galway, who worked as a Bordeaux merchant. Its most recent and significant history has been in the hands of the renowned Cazes family, owners since 1973, firstly Jean Michel and now his son Jean Charles. They produce a wine which is much finer than its Fifth Growth status and each vintage is given high scores. Delicious in youth, the wine ages magnificently – "impressive at five years, beautiful at ten years and irresistible at twenty," (Oz Clarke).

 

"Rich, impressively ripe fruit, the fruit dense and black, with juicy black plum flavors followed by dusty tannins. The wine is chunky, powerful for the year, the dryness smoothed by new wood. " (4/2010)
