Winemaker's Notes:

Blanc de Lynch-Bages 2006 is imparted a rounded, yet refreshing complexity. The nose is dominated by very enticing floral notes with a touch of citrus, and on the palate grapefruit and white peach shine through.

About Chateau Lynch-Bages:

Overlooking 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. His grandson, Jean-Michel Cazes restructured the estate in 1974, adding state-of-the-art winemaking equipment, while keeping the former wooden vats as a reminder of the 19th century.

The grapes are all hand picked and then carefully sorted before crushing. A very strict selection is made prior to blending and the wine is traditionally aged in oak barrels before bottling.
