In Bordeaux each year is unique, with a character unlike any other. As with every child, a wine has two parents: the father (terroir), and a mother (the vintage). It will have something of each, but the wine will nonetheless be true to itself.
Château Lynch-Bages was founded in 1749 by Thomas Lynch, the son of an Irish immigrant from Galway. The estate was sold to Sebastien Jurine, a Swiss wine merchant, in 1824 and the wine went on to achieve Fifth Growth status in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. Jean-Charles Cazes purchased the property in 1938 and the Cazes family has run the business ever since.
