History of Chateau Lynch-Bages
There are few chateaux that have marked the history of the Médoc like that of Château Lynch-Bages. It is on the “”Batges”” lands near Pauillac where this great wine adventure began in the 17th century. The Château, then known as “”Cru de Lynch””, was owned by Thomas Lynch, son of John Lynch, a native of Galway (Ireland) and a Bordeaux trader. The reputation of Thomas Lynch’s wines was such that the Château was ranked among the Fifth Classified Growths in the prestigious classification of 1855 in honour of the World Fair in Paris.
Recognized as one of Bordeaux’s most sought-after Classified Growths, Château Lynch-Bages offers the pleasure of powerful, opulent wines that have become more precise after each vintage. Elegant and structured, the wines are generous in their youth while becoming more aromatically complex as they age.
