Château Lynch-Bages, a Pauillac Grand Cru Classé owned by the Cazes family since 1939, will embark on a new chapter in its history early 2017 with the renovation of its wine-making facilities. Architect Chien Chung Pei has been placed in charge of the project.

Château Lynch-Bages has launched its renovation project. “For several years now, our team of specialists has concentrated on the substantive work needed to improve our knowledge of the Lynch-Bages vineyard, studying its soils, introducing mass selection, analysing plots, and so on. This project aimed at renovating the estate’s technical facilities now marks the next logical step,” says Jean-Charles Cazes, who has managed the family-owned group since 2006.

Technical improvements in these new facilities will centre on three areas: a vast area dedicated to receiving the harvest; the fermentation cellar, allowing a more precise vinification of individual parcels in 80 stainless steel vats; and finally a large cellar, capable of accommodating two vintages at once, hence increasing the duration of wine maturation. Work is expected to last two and a half years.
The project will bring its fair share of innovation, while respecting Lynch-Bages’ history. Gravity flow winemaking will be a key process in the new facilities, as a nod to the estate’s historic fermentation cellar designed by Skawinski in the 19th century, which will also have its proper place amidst the future buildings.

Château Lynch-Bages is closed until spring 2020, for renovation works.
