Château Lynch-Bages

Château Lynch-Bages (5. Cru) ligger lige uden for byen Pauillac i det sydlige Pauillac. Der er blevet dyrket vin på ejendommen siden 1750'erne, og fra 1934 har vinproduktionen været lagt i hænderne på familien Cazes.

På de næsten 90 ha marker fremstilles årligt flere end 350.000 flasker vin. Hovedparten er 1. vinen Château de Lynch-Bages 5. Cru, mens 25-40 % af høsten går til 2. vinen Echo de Lynch-Bages (indtil årgang 2008 hed den Château Haut-Bages Averous).
Slottets hvide AOC Bordeaux så dagens lys i 1990: Blanc de Lynch-Bages. Den fremstilles på et blend af de tre hvide druer Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon og Muscadelle.


"At the gates of Pauillac, the Lynch-Bages estate owes part of its name to the ancient hamlet of Bages, which for centuries was home to generations of winemakers. Its great wine history began in the 18th century with the Chevalier Pierre Drouillard. Upon his death in 1749, he bequeathed the estate to his daughter, Elizabeth, who was then the wife of Thomas Lynch. The property thus passed into the Lynch family for seventy-five years. Then known as the "Cru de Lynch", the property was sold in 1824 to Sébastien Jurine, a wine merchant. In 1862, "Jurine Bages" was sold to the brothers Cayrou wine merchants who restored the estate's name as "Lynch-Bages". In the 1930s, one of the Cayrou family descendent; General Félix de Vial, leased 
the vineyard to Jean-Charles Cazes, who was already in charge of Château Ormes de Pez in Saint Estèphe. Cazes would go on to purchase both properties in 1934. Lynch-Bages has been run by the Cazes family ever since. It is today Jean-Michel Cazes and his son Jean-Charles who run the property."Blanc de Lynch-Bages" is born in 1990 from the three white varietals of the Bordeaux appellation".
