    Michel Lynch, France
    The name of Michel Lynch, the knight who owned Chateau Lynch-Bages and was Mayor of Pauillac during the French Revolution, is inextricably linked with the great wines of Bordeaux. Born in 1754, Michel Lynch devoted his life to improving the wines on his Lynch-Bages property. A shrewd wine producer, he was one of the prime movers in the viticultural advances at the end of the 17th century, in particular with the early trials of de-stemming (separating the stalk and pips) before fermentation, which subsequently became widespread in Medoc.

    Towards the end of the 1980s, the owner of Lynch-Bages and tireless globetrotter in the name of promoting Bordeaux wines, Jean-Michel Cazes devised a sort of spiritual affiliation in honour of Michel Lynch, naming this new range of wines after him.

    With Michel Lynch, Jean-Michel Cazes aims to offer a selection of wines reflecting the diversity and richness of the Bordeaux terroirs. These wines are aimed at the wine-lover who wishes to be able to drink – without having to wait – a wine that expresses both the finesse and richness of Bordeaux wines, the best of the terroirs and the excellence of a vintage. Nowadays, Michel Lynch perfectly encapsulates the tradition and modernity of Bordeaux wines, which are elegant, audacious and accessible; easy-drinking wines that are quite simply conducive to conviviality!

    One of the most important wine regions of the world, Bordeaux is a powerhouse producer of wines of all colors, sweetness levels, and price points. Separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a coastal pine forest, this relatively flat region has a mild maritime climate, marked by cool wet winters and warm summers. Annual weather differences create significant vintage variations, making Bordeaux an exciting region to follow.

    The Gironde estuary, a defining feature of Bordeaux, separates most of the region into the Left Bank and the Right Bank. Farther inland, where the Gironde splits into the Garonne and Dordogne Rivers, the bucolic, rolling hills of the area in between, called Entre-Deux-Mers, is a source of great quality, approachable reds and whites.

    The Left Bank, dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, contains the Médoc, Graves, and Sauternes, as well as the region’s most famous chateaux. Merlot is important here as the perfect blending grape for Cabernet Sauvignon adding plush fruit and softening Cabernet's sometimes hefty tannins. Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec may also be used in the Left Bank blends.

    Merlot is the principal variety of the Right Bank; Cabernet Franc adds structure and complexity to Merlot, creating wines that are concentrated, supple, and more imminently ready for drinking, compared with their Left Bank counterparts. Key appellations of the Right Bank include St. Emilion and Pomerol.

    Dry and sweet white wines are produced throughout the region from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and sometimes Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris. Some of the finest dry whites can be found in the the Graves sub-appellation of Pessac-Léognan, while Sauternes is undisputedly the gold standard for sweet wines. Small amounts of rosé and sparkling wine are made in Bordeaux as well.
