Winery Info/ Brand
The history of wine production in the Bages territory began in the 18th century. Since 1749 to 1824, the vineyard was owned and managed by Thomas Lynch for 75 years to produce high quality wine under the name of "Cru de Lynch" and included as part of the prestigious 1855 Classification, for the Exposition Universelle de Paris. Lynch's wine would soon be classified as one of the fifth growths. In the 1930's, a descendant of the Cayrou family leased the vineyard to Jean-Charles Cazes, and Cazes went on to purchase both properties in the wake of World War II. Since then, Lynch-Bages has been run by the Cazes family.
Region Info/ Origin
Bordeaux nestled in south-western France, is a port city on the Garonne and a hub of the famed wine-growing region. With many types of soil, in particular, the gravel clay over the sub-soil of limestone, is very good for grapes plantation. Throughout Bordeaux, the growing region is Merlot-dominated and the grape varietal is mostly selected for blending other types of wine due to its fruit complexity. From this vineyard are fine wine created with subtle sweetness and tannic red to dry white for easy drinking. Besides, the beauty and charm of the country also introduces the Gothic Cathédrale St-André, its many fine and contemporary art museums as well as the 18th- and 19th-century mansions.
