Chateau Lynch Bages 2022

On the 13th June 2023, we now see the release of the fifth growth wine from Pauillac named Lynch Bages, and the price is up 17.3% on last years release. The ex negociant price is 105.60 Euro a bottle. The wine is being offered by the international trade for £1,280.00 per case of 12 bottles at 75cl each according to Liv-ex, and this will result in an increase of 20.8% on the opening price of the 2021's.


At this price, the 2019, 2020 and 2021 vintages look better value in relation to today’s release. See more pricing analysis below.
