Made from a blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and a small amount of Muscadelle, the 2017 vintage is partly barrel aged although this isn’t very apparent in the finish. Floral and fragrant with lots of citrus fruit to keep it fresh. It has a lot to offer but is less in keeping with some of the more traditional vintages.
Additional Wine Notes
First made in 1990 Blanc de Lynch-Bages was always viewed as a rare Medoc white wine. It may still be the case that not many dry white wines are produced in the Medoc in comparison to other parts of Bordeaux, particularly Sauternes and Barsac, but there are an increasing number of producers looking to experiment with this style.

Chateau Lynch-Bages has long been a reliable producer of second rung clarets.
It is constantly a drinkable wine from youth to old age, but it is worth hanging on for 15-20 years where possible.
The blend is 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc.
The chateau also produces a white wine known as Blanc de Lynch-Bages.
