Château Lynch‑Bages Pauillac 5ème Grand Cru Classé

Wine Details


Red Blend





Wine Description

(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.
