“Rare & Limited • Lynch-Bages Blanc”

White Gold from Bordeaux's Finest

By David Gettenberg

Chateau Lynch-Bages is one of the most prestigious red Bordeaux producers.  

A must-have for collectors with every release, few aficionados are aware they make a stunning Bordeaux Blanc,  Blanc de Lynch-Bages.  That's because so little is imported each year from their exclusive, 7 hectare limestone vineyard.

Prepare yourself for a kick of classic citrus notes from the Sauvignon Blanc, exotic white peach from the Semillon, and a lingering racy finish from the Muscadelle. 

This wine has a lovely complexity with balance and lift and does that thing where it waits for a heartbeat, then makes you wait for a heartbeat, before releasing its stone fruit and succulent, slate-tinged citrus. The plots are on the west side of the appellation with more limestone in the subsoils helping keep the balance that is evident here. Two thirds of the juice was fermented in barrels with one third in stainless steel - it's juicy and pretty much ready to go."  Decanter

We love this wine for its vibrant blend of Sauvignon Blanc (59%), Semillon (21%), and Muscadelle (20%).  

A must have for seafood of any kind, this is a wonderful alternative to your finest Sancerre, especially if you are looking for a white that is a bit more layered and nuanced than your typical Sauvignon Blanc. 

Extremely limited.  Less than 10 cases imported. 

Enjoy!

“Lovely complexity with balance.”

Decanter • 94 / 100

"This wine has a lovely complexity with balance and lift and does that thing where it waits for a heartbeat, then makes you wait for a heartbeat, before releasing its stone fruit and succulent, slate-tinged citrus. The plots are on the west side of the appellation, often 1.5oC lower than at main Lynch Bages, with more limestone in the subsoils helping keep the balance that is evident here. Two thirds of the juice was fermented in barrels with one third in stainless steel - it's juicy and pretty much ready to go (it bottles in two weeks)."

“Tropical and citrus flavors plus a racy backbone.”

Wine Advocate • 92 / 100

"The 2018 Blanc de Lynch Bages is showing a little reduction, opening out to notions of warm peaches, passion fruit and gooseberries plus suggestions of honeysuckle, coriander seed and chalk dust. Medium-bodied, the palate is completely filled with tropical and citrus flavors plus a racy backbone, finishing long with a touch of chalkiness."
