Estate Notes

Château Lynch-Bages 2009 was purchased in its original wooden cases and comes from a great Bordeaux vintage.

Lynch-Bages, with a succession of fine vintages since 1981, has justifiably built up a solid reputation based on deeply concentrated, classically styled wines. Its owner, Jean-Michel Cazes, is a proud, gregarious man, who 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.

Known fondly in the trade as Lunch Bags, this phrase is perhaps more appropriate now than ever given the redevelopment of the hamlet of Bages, which now boasts a stylish café and bakery – perfect for lunchtime stops!


"The black/purple-tinged 2009 exhibits a glorious perfume of graphite, black currants, and subtle smoke, powerful, thick, unctuously textured flavors, huge yet sweet tannins, fabulous purity, and a finish that lasts 40-45 seconds."
