Chateau Lynch Bages
Chateau Lynch Bages
The brand name Chateau Lynch Bages lies with its founder Michel Lynch. The brand name was founded in the 18th century and he is the person who personifies the tradition of great Bordeaux wines. His efforts and hard work helped the family to earn a name in wines. Michel Lynch was the son of Thomas Lynch and Elizabeth Drouilbacon, who was the daughter of the owner of the Bages estate in Pauillac. The property was given into the hands of Michel Lynch by his elder brother Jean- Baptiste
The vineyards of Chateau Lynch Bages are situated on the South and South-West boundary of Pauillac. The other buildings of the Chateau are about 500 yards away from the Pauillac.
