Although Chateau Lynch Bages is classified as a Fifth Growth, the wines produced from the estate far exceed this status and are rich and powerful but also express great amounts of charm. In 1749, Thomas Lynch inherited an estate in the village of Bages, and Chateau Lynch Bages was founded. In this same year, the most celebrated member of the Lynch family was born. Comte Jean-Baptiste Lynch played a prominent role in public life in Bordeaux; he was a member and later President of the Parliament de Bordeaux, as well as a member of the Council of 500 in the early days of the French Revolution, before finally becoming Mayor of Bordeaux. However, such were his commitments to public duty that Chateau Lynch Bages was given to his brother Michel to oversee. Michel ran the estate until 1824 before it was sold to a Swiss wine merchant and then passed on once again to the Cayrou family.

Almost a century later, Jean-Chales Cazes purchased the property in 1937 and soon established his reputation as one of the greatest characters in the Medoc. He was famous for his love of every aspect of winemaking and his commitment to Chateau Lynch Bages. Upon his death aged 95 in 1972, the running of the Chateau was passed onto his son André – the former Mayor of Pauillac – and his grandson Jean-Michel. After many years of renovations and improvements, the Chateau is now a pristine building highly suited to making the outstanding wines synonymous with its name. Since 2006, Jean-Michel’s son, Jean-Charles, has been steering the property and continuing the estate’s rich winemaking history.

The estate is located high on the west hill of the Pauillac region. 90 hectares are dedicated to vines which are grown upon deep gravel beds covered with limestone. A second wine is also made from the estate, Echo de Lynch Bages, which accurately ‘echoes’ the celebrated Grand Vin with its rich tannins, fruit purity and power.
