Lot Details

Fun fact: did you know that Château Lynch-Bages was actually classified in the 1855 Classification of the Médoc under the name of Château Jurine Bages? The property was owned by a Swiss wine merchant at the time, Sebastien Jurine. When the property was sold in 1862, the new owners restored the name to honor the Lynch family. Jurine just doesn’t have the same ring to it, does it?

Speaking of names, a Lynch-Bages name we adore is Cazes. When Jean-Charles Cazes took charge of the winery in 1939, his winemaking led to instant recognition. His Son Andre and later grandson Jean-Michel helped usher Lynch-Bages into infamy. They expanded the vineyards, modernized the facilities and winemaking practices, and created a sense of family amongst patrons and visitors. Plus, they’ve been Guests of Honor and have attended l’Ete du Vin.

The iconic Lynch-Bages Pauillac style of winemaking has always had a certain opulence, even in its youth. Then as now, Château Lynch-Bages has been nothing short of consistent. Powerful, elegant, and open, vintage after vintage, the wine has acquired greater accuracy, adding distinction to the hedonistic character that made it the quintessence of Bordeaux wine. The 1989 vintage seems to be the wine that will not slow down! After decades, it seems to maintains its inimitable energy and vigor. Plus, a double magnum ensures even more longevity.
