Dark cassis, plum and cherry fruit flavors stream through in this red, harnessed well by bolts of iron along the way. Sweet tobacco detail echoes through the finish, which is seriously long. An extremely rock-solid wine in the making here. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now. Score range: 96-99 Read more

This is hugely impressive right from the off - strap on your walking boots, get your crampons at the ready, there is a wall to climb - not one that you ever hit by the way, because contrary to expectations this unfurls slowly, keeping the peak just out of sight.It’s great quality and one of my favourites from this property because it’s full of power but with a caress, so much tannic power too and yet so light of foot. It’s filled with absolutely delicious black chocolate, rosemary, cardamom and pepper but also lets the light in thanks for a fresh core running through. Having tasted it a few times it’s clear it’s going to age extremely well. A yield of 38hl/ha.

This is incredibly powerful and structured with so much tannin backbone and length, yet it’s cool and fresh with a compact palate and great length. Muscular.

Aromas of blackberries, cloves, licorice, dried leaves, graphite and black olives. It’s full-bodied with firm, tight tannins. Structured and tannic with beautiful austerity and a long, mineral and layered finish. The tannins grow on the palate. Try from 2026.

The Lynch-Bages style is unmistakeable in this wine's richness and the density of its structure and tannins. In addition it conveys a great sense of style, restrained power and opulence. Drink this wine from 2027.

Winemakers Note

Lynch Bages: The Distinctive Legacy of the Cazes Family Nestled on the outskirts of Pauillac, with a commanding view of the Gironde estuary, Lynch-Bages, designated as a 1855 Grand Cru Classé, extends across one of the commune's most beautiful gravelly hilltops. Originally under the ownership of the esteemed Lynch family, of Irish heritage, the estate was purchased in 1939 by Jean-Charles Cazes. Blending the realms of wine and culture, the Cazes family has positioned Lynch-Bages at the core of a lifestyle. In 2006, Jean-Michel Cazes passed the torch to his son, Jean-Charles, who remains steadfast in upholding the estate's exacting standards. The family has dedicated several years to meticulous vineyard work, pursuing an unwavering commitment to excellence. To further this pursuit, the Cazes family has invested in state-of-the-art facilities that match their lofty aspirations. The inauguration of the new winery in 2020 marked a significant milestone. Designed with a gravity-based approach, it draws inspiration from 19th-century vinification methods while seamlessly integrating modern knowledge and precision. The wines of Lynch-Bages serve as a testament to the family's generosity and unwavering pursuit of excellence. Click here to watch a video of Lynch Bages: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQcVDWj94SE
