This morning sees the highly anticipated releases from the Cazes stable of a classic Pauillac favourite, Chateau Lynch Bages 2014 (£575ib per 12), and from the same stable, the stunning value Les Ormes de Pez (£160ib per 12). In 2014 both Chateaux have succeeded in encapsulating the finest points of the vintage, producing not only stunning, cellarable wines but pricing them at a level which makes them ‘must buys’ in our opinion.lynch-bages-sign

Les Ormes de Pez from St Estephe highlights the strengths of the Cabernet grape in 2014. It was stunning when we sampled it in Bordeaux a few weeks ago. Rich, sumptuous and oozing dark, voluptuous fruit, this is a top performing Cru Bourgeois that can justify a place in everyone’s cellar for future drinking.

Lynch Bages, a true Goedhuis favourite, is immensely popular in Europe, America and Asia, a testament to the energy of owner Jean-Michel Cazes who has travelled far introducing fine wine drinkers to his fabulous Pauillac estate. This 2014 is classic Lynch in character; muscular, dark and powerful and finely balanced. At £575ib per 12 this release price surpasses our expectations and makes it one of the most attractive 2014 Pauillacs released to date.
