Mainly composed of Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine combines structure and finesse, elegance and longevity. It is also distinguished by its opulence. Full-bodied in its youth, it evolves as it is ageing towards more flavours and complexity. The assertion of Lynch-Bages' own style corresponds to the arrival of Jean-Charles Cazes at the head of the estate in 1934. An innovative winemaker, emblematic of a new generation of owners who knew how to break with tradition, taking risks to ensure ripe harvests, he was known to be often the last to harvest in Pauillac.
