Lynch Bages


Auf Chateau Lynch Bages, im alten Fasslager, hat man einen selten gewordenen Anblick: hier findet man noch einige traditionelle Arbeitsgeräte und einen Boden aus Latten, der zur Nutzung der Gravitation bei der Traubenverarbeitung diente.

Unter der Leitung von Nicolas Labenne arbeiten 35 Leute an der täglichen Pflege der Weinberge, was seit 2006 auch noch durch Satelliten-Daten unterstützt wird.

Neben dem Einsatz modernster Technik sind es aber die Menschen, die für das Gelingen und das Zusammenspiel verantwortlich sind – mit großartigem Ergebnis!

- Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE: " Lynch Bages has been one of the most popular and successful wines to emerge from Bordeaux and much of its success is owed to the charismatic Jean-Michel Cazes, whose family has owned this property since 1939. Following Jean-Michel’s well-deserved retirement, his equally charming and genial son, Jean-Charles, has been managing Lynch Bages since 2005. What is so appealing about Lynch Bages is that it has long been a classic Pauillac that, while not the most tannic and backward wine of the appellation, clearly possesses what most wine insiders love about Pauillac – lots of robust, rich, full-bodied crème de cassis fruit, 25-30 years of aging potential in top vintages, and an enormously satisfying, complex style. Moreover, most vintages of Lynch Bages can be drunk after 10-12 years of cellaring. As the following tasting notes indicate, this property appears to have gone through a slight slump in the late nineties and early 21st century, but the efforts Jean-Charles has made over the last five vintages have been spectacular. This estate has certainly benefitted from his youthful vigor and enthusiasm after his father put the estate on the Bordeaux map."
