The winery sits on 90 hectares (220 acres) of well-drained soil planted predominantly with red grape varieties. Today you can tour the property by appointment. The site also offers a wine school with half-day, full-day and multi-day workshops.

  • Visit before the next closed for renovation during the next two or three years. The visit to eight people lasts an hour and a half and ends with tasting of five wines (including a serious white family Cazes, a high Bages Averous (the ancestor of the Echo), a Pez Elm, a Lynch Bages 2011. The guide is very competent, gives a maximum of technical and historical information and responds in a way quite reasoned questions. The choice of wines tasted was didactic but did not render justice to the Lynch Bages: the 2011 is still closed, he had to wait at least another two or three years for drinking.

  • The presentation of the Castle as well as explanations of Mylène were friendly. Tasting at the height of the premises

  • The tour was interesting, a lot of information on the old and new methods of wine-making. But the speaker recites a little too always in the same tone. We would have liked to see a video on the cultivated soils. The tasting offers too young wines, which does not allow us to enjoy this grand cru with all its aromas. But for 9 euros, worth it!

  • The notable feature during our château visit was the mid-nineteenth century winery equipment: a sorting table, a basket press, and rails above the fermenting tanks. There are two or three restaurants on the property; our lunch at the café was fine.
  • Excellent English speaking L'Esprit De Lynch-Bages tour. Lots of good information, well preserved older wine making equipment and a surprisingly modest modern set up. It's worth paying extra for the 3 extra wines to taste, 5 in total, and refills are encouraged!
  • Very professional and well run wine tour at a good producer.
  • French women giving tour was phenomenal! Go on tour!
  • Visit interesting but the castle is in the name. Nothing in the architecture looks like a castle. But worth it
