Château Lynch Bages 2011, 5eme Cru Classe Pauillac

Château Lynch Bages is an excellent wine which consistently outperforms its fifth growth classification and is regularly ranked in the same league as second growths. The style was defined in the 1930’s by JC Cazes and today the wine’s distinctive character has earned it a place amongst Pauillac’s greatest.

“The medium-bodied 2011 Lynch Bages possesses a saturated ruby/purple color as well as beautiful creme de cassis notes, a generous, concentrated, well-made, medium to full-bodied style and supple tannins. A successful effort in 2011, it should be drinkable in 3-4 years and last for 15+. It is a sleeper of the vintage. Drink 2017-2032.”90pts Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, April 2014

About the producer: Château Lynch Bages

Château Lynch Bages is an excellent wine which consistently outperforms its fifth growth classification and is regularly ranked in the same league as second growths. The story began in 1749 with Thomas Lynch, son of an Irishman from Galway who worked as a merchant in Bordeaux. Later the Cayrou family, who then owned the domaine, leased the vineyard to Jean-Charles Cazes, a farmer at Château Ormes de Pez at the time. He later purchased both properties and Lynch-Bages has been run by the Cazes family ever since. In the 1930’s JC Cazes defined the style of Lynch Bages and today the wine’s distinctive character has earned it a place amongst Pauillac’s greatest. View our selection.
