Chateau Lynch Bages, located in the Pauillac appellation of Bordeaux, is one of eighteen Cinquiemes Crus (Fifth Growths) in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. In 1939, Lynch Bages was acquired by Jean-Charles Cazes, and the estate has remained in the Cazes family ever since. The vineyard, which has been expanded within the last fifty years, is 100 hectares; most of the vines are around 30 years old, but some are almost 90 years old. The wine is first aged with malolactic fermentation, mainly in steel tanks, and is then aged for about 15 months in French oak barrels. Beginning with the 2015 vintage, the estate became the first in Bordeaux to use new technology that monitors the development of wine inside the barrel or vat. Over 35,000 cases of wine are produced annually.
