Estate Notes

Château Lynch-Bages 2001 comes from a classical Bordeaux vintage producing cool-climate wines of elegance, restraint and balance, with pure fruit and nice firm tannins

Lynch-Bages has been in the Cazes family for the last 70 years, and under the current proprietor, Jean-Michel Cazes, it has risen to international fame. A proud, gregarious man, Jean-Michel has constantly championed the wines of Lynch-Bages, Pauillac and Bordeaux. So much so, that President Chirac bestowed upon him the country’s highest decoration – a Knighthood in the Legion of Honour.


"Cassis, bitter chocolate and shoe polish on the nose. Rich, vinous and nicely delineated, with intense, youthfully medicinal dark fruit flavors. Not as concentrated or thick as the '00 but classy, firmly tannic and persistent. Still a bit bound-up but with obvious sweetness. Late note of dark chocolate." Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar

"Loads of currant and blackberry, with hints of Indian spices. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Round and generous for the vintage." Wine Spectator
