Château Pauillac of Lynch- Bages 2016

$60.00 Excl. tax

Meaty and decadent, very ripe currant aromas, full-body, velvety-textured tannins, powerful finish, structured yet remains polished and focused.

The property sits among favorably designed hillcrests located south and southwest of the city. This particular topography allows for both a natural drainage of soils to the river and, with help of the water table in shallow areas, a fine feeding of water for the vines. The Atlantic Ocean and the Gironde estuary play a fundamental role in regulating temperature. Combined with the natural barrier of the Landes forest alleviating the effect of harsh weather coming in from the west, they help to create a highly specific microclimate that is especially conducive to the cultivation of the vine.

WINEMAKER: Jean Michel Cazes

APPELLATION: Pauillac

AREA UNDER VINES: 100 hectares

TERROIR: 35-year-old vines with gravel soil over clay subsoil

GRAPE VARIETIES: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot

TASTING NOTES: A meaty and decadent Lynch with very ripe currant aromas on the nose. Full body, velvety-textured tannins, and a powerful finish. It shows so much structure and fruit yet remains polished and focused.
