Chateau Lynch-Bages Pauillac 2014- Flowering got under way rapidly and evenly. Similarly, the slight precocity seen since the beginning of spring gradually dissipated as the season wore on. The key event for these vines occurred on 25 July, when a hailstorm wrought damage on the berries.After a tour of the vineyard, the crop on the vines was deemed to be correct, and just a little tidying-up was carried out on a vigorous plot of white Sauvignon. On the other hand, it was decided to carry out a first leaf thinning at the end of July followed by a second one at the end of August owing to a cool and relatively wet summer, which could induce cryptogamic diseases.Picking then began on 15 September in brilliant sunshine with the Muscadelles in perfect health. There followed a first selective picking of the Sauvignon and Semillon, which showed low yields but great quality and lovely balance. We finished harvesting white Sauvignons with lovely composition on 18 September.Extremely rich and fresh, this 2014 vintage develops a volume and vivacity on the palate reminiscent of a great white wine vintage.
