WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“An exceptionally successful vintage for this property. Pretty, deep crimson. Rich nose redolent of treacle. Smooth, quite sumptuous texture. Very flattering and relatively subtle.” Jancis Robinson

It stands out from the Lynch Bages estate in the early 19th century, on the death of its owner of Jean-Baptiste Lynch. Michel Lynch, brother of Jean-Baptiste, ran the property until 1845 whent the family was bought by a Spanish merchant knowned as Vasquez. It is only in 1919 with Jean Castéja, and then in 1969 with his brother Emile, that the Castle and its installations gets modernize. Vineyards, cellars and vats are renewed to offer the best wine possible to its customers.
