The property in the village of Bages takes the other part of its name from Thomas Lynch, a Bordeaux merchant of Irish lineage who owned the property from 1749 to 1824.

There are over 100 hectares (247 acres) of vineyards, which beginning from- 2006 have been divided into 200 parcels to more closely match viticultural practices to terroir. Cabernet Sauvignon currently accounts for 68 percent of planted area. The rest is planted to Merlot (26), Cabernet Franc (4) and Petit Verdot (2 percent). Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats with extensive remontage (pumping-over) for concentration and color intensity. Lynch-Bages is aged for around 15 months in oak barrels, rougly two thirds of which are new. A notable feature of the estate is the old vat-house with its traditional slatted floors, ropes, pulleys and buckets, which give the advantages of gravity flow, a process incorporated into many modern winery designs.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-03-08T16:45:57-05:00","created_at":"2023-02-24T10:01:54-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","LK2402","Other_Wine","Producer_Château Lynch-Bages","Region_Bordeaux","Source_Bestofwines0223","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Bordeaux Blend Red"],"price":45999,"price_min":45999,"price_max":45999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42802340823178,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2016 | Château Lynch-Bages | Pauillac","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":45999,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/43_c65e8366-21e5-435f-aa90-fbb84e7d50b5.jpg?v=1677250942"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/43_c65e8366-21e5-435f-aa90-fbb84e7d50b5.jpg?v=1677250942","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2016 | Château Lynch-Bages | Pauillac at CaskCartel.com","id":24285015867530,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.409,"height":613,"width":251,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/43_c65e8366-21e5-435f-aa90-fbb84e7d50b5.jpg?v=1677250942"},"aspect_ratio":0.409,"height":613,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/43_c65e8366-21e5-435f-aa90-fbb84e7d50b5.jpg?v=1677250942","width":251}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2016 | Château Lynch-Bages | Pauillac\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eDeep garnet red in color.
