Winemakers Note

Lynch Bages, the signature of the Cazes family Located on the outskirts of Pauillac, overlooking the Gironde estuary, the Lynch-Bages vineyard (1855 Grand Cru Classé) stretches over the Bages plateau, one of the commune’s most beautiful gravelly hilltops. Formerly owned by the illustrious Lynch family, of Irish descent, the estate was purchased in 1939 by Jean-Charles Cazes. Marrying the worlds of wine and culture, the Cazes family has positioned Lynch-Bages at the core of a lifestyle. In 2006, Jean-Michel Cazes handed the management over to his son Jean-Charles, who is driven by the same high standards, and the Lynch-Bages wines have continued to reflect their generosity and excellence. New technical facilities to match the family's ambitions For several years, substantive work has concentrated on improving knowledge of the vineyard allowing to pass a decisive step in the production of great wines. As a logical extension of this precise viticulture, the family entrusted the American architect Chien Chung Pei with the gigantic renovation of its technical facilities. Operational since 2020, this new winery, based on gravity, is inspired by 19th century vinification methods while combining modern-day knowledge and precision. The intra-plots division allows for the implementation of tailor-made vinification, essential for the creation of haute couture wines.
