ABOUT THE WINEOverlooking the Gironde estuary at the entrance to Pauillac, the vines of Lynch-Bages are located on the Bages plateau, on one of the finest gravelly rises in the appellation. The estate once belonged to the famous Lynch family, of Irish origin, and was acquired by Jean-Charles Cazes in 1934, who remain owners to this day. The estate is unusual in Bordeaux for its use of massal selection (propagation of their own vines rather than of nursery-grown clones) to replenish ageing vines in its vineyards, which allows the vineyards and the wines produced from them to retain individuality.

TASTING NOTES
Stony bitter lemon and fresh pear aromas; new oak, anise and pineapple characterise the palate, with honeysuckle and lemongrass on the finish. Good ageing potential.

FOOD PAIRING
Perfect for creamy dishes, especially seafood.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
White Bordeaux develops wonderful complexity with age, losing acidity and gaining extra weight with each decade; peaking 10 years from vintage.
