Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) Daring, innovative and with a reputation for often being the last to harvest, Jean-Charles Cazes defined the style of Lynch-Bages in the 1930's. The wine's distinctive character has earned it a place amongst Pauillac's greatest. It combines structure, finesse and elegance, offering generous aromas in its youth and developing deeper complexities with bottle age.

Expert Reviews
  • Decanter
    Rating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Along with 1945 and 1982, 1961 ranks as one of the best years for 20th century Bordeaux. Fifth-growth Lynch-Bages is a relative bargain, making around £2000 a case at auction, and pips 1961 Chateau Figeac.
