Michel Lynch, the Bordeaux wine-growers’ art of blending
Headed by oenologist Anne-Sophie Giambi and supported by technical director Daniel Llose, Michel Lynch delivers the best of Bordeaux for each vintage.
Rigorous selection and the art of blending
The Michel Lynch blended wines are the result of a selection reflecting the richness and diversity of the Bordeaux terroirs and the intrinsic qualities of the vintages. They are matured with patience in the cellar in Macau, Médoc, until they possess a combination of lovely concentration, charm and roundness.
Modern and efficient, the Michel Lynch wine-blending cellar is located in the midst of the vineyards. 10,000hl of thermo-regulated stainless-steel vats have been occupying 1,800m² since 2001. The storage area covers 4,500m², with temperature and humidity both regulated, and a capacity for 4 million bottles. Michel Lynch’s bottling and labelling chains and their cutting-edge facilities ensure flexibility and high-quality production.
Quality and innovation
Ever mindful of food safety and hygiene, a HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point) risk assessment has been undertaken, and the Michel Lynch range of wines has been deemed to meet regulatory standards.
57 different AOCs
With its 57 different AOCs covering 120,000 hectares of vineyards, Bordeaux is the largest Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée fine-wine producing region in France and throughout the world. The multi-variety Bordeaux wine region produces mainly reds from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, and whites from Sauvignon and Semillon. The Michel Lynch range of wines is crafted by selectively blending these different varieties.
