  • We were received at Lynch-Bages for a full tour of the vineyards and we have been very well received. the welcome was friendly and our girl guide's explanations were comprehensive and interesting. Special mention to the "Museum" where are kept (for how long) the old Winery and the different systems of reception of grape harvest, crushers and presses. A voyage in time for any wine lover.

  • 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.

  • We had an amazing morning with Charles learning about the terroir. So fun tasting the Savignon Cabernrmet, Savignon Franc, Merlot & Petit Verdot! We got to compete & make a blend - our group won!
  • Great place to stop by in Medoc. Winery's very clean, well organised modern facilities worth seeing. Shopping at a little craft shop inside is also fun.
  • Château Lynch-Bages perform very well on Bordeaux market. Château Lynch-Bages, Grand Cru Clasé en 1855. 7th September, 2015, Pauillac. Owner: Cazes family 100 hectares Production ~ 350.000 bottles Soil Garonne gravel 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot Barrel ageing 12-18 months - New barrels: 70% Second wine - Écho de Lynch Bages. 82 pts / 100 Recommended place by me.
  • Nice wine tour , and very well run.
  • 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.
