Château Lynch Bageswww.lynchbages.com
Overlooking the Gironde Estuary at the entrance to Pauillac, the vines of Lynch-Bages are located on the Bages plateau, one of the finest gravelly rises in the appellation. The estate once belonged to the famous Lynch family, of Irish origin, and was acquired by Jean-Charles Cazes in 1934. His grandson, Jean-Michel Cazes, restructured the estate in 1974, adding state-of-the-art winemaking equipment, while keeping the former wooden vats as a reminder of the 19th century.
