(4.1/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
The name Chateau Lynch-Bages represents both a winery and the type of the red wine produced by this property. Thomas Lynch inherited the estate through his wife Elizabeth in 1749, who gave the property its name. It has passed through many families through the years. 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.

  • 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!

  • A guide who is very familiar with its subject, Castle who uses materials new generation but which keeps the old version (barrique wood) ideal to discover both methods! Paid visit but which is worth

  • Beautiful destination for an excursion in the MEDOC area. A competent, friendly young woman apparently took us through the areas of the Château. Although we were not logged on we could spontaneously partake of this guide. Guided tours are offered in several languages. Who here wants 'his' language should log in before on the homepage. The wine tasting is moderate, two wines are offered. Also Lavinal small café in the courtyard is recommended.

  • 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
