Side by side: John Lynch & John Talbot

Sunday, 4 March, 2012

John Lynch emigrated from Ireland to France in 1691 and his son Thomas founded the Château Lynch-Bages winery in Bordeaux in 1749. Some 200 years later, Jean-Charles Cazes bought the estate and it’s been owned and run by the Cazes family since then. Sir John Talbot, Governor of Aquitaine and Earl of Shrewsbury, acquired what would become Château Talbot in the 15th century and it was bought from his heirs by Désiré Cordier in 1917. Today, Lorraine and Nancy Bignon-Cordier, the fourth generation of the Cordier family, own and operate Château Talbot in Bordeaux.
