Chateau Lynch Bages once belonged to the well known Lynch family and was then bought by Jean-Charles Cazes in the 1930s. In 1974 it was then past to his grandson, Jean-Michel Cazes who spent several years in the United States developing a view of international importance of both wine and business. A large amount of modernisation and rebuilding has taken place at Lynch Bages, but the making of wine still remains traditional.

Two wines are produced: Chateau Lynch-Bages 420,000 bottles and Chateau Haut Bages Averous 120,000 bottles.
