Chateau Lynch-Bages near Bordeaux

I understand there is an excellent restaurant at the winery. I have not been able to find any information about booking or menus. Can you direct me to a resource? Thank you.

My group had the Impromptu lunch on May 6.
Good: We arrived the day before our reservation but they graciously accommodated us.
Not so good: At booking, on arrival and when the menu was presented we informed the maitre de hotel one member of the party was a vegetarian. The small bites all contained meat, but the server did not disclose that. When asked the server said he did not realize there was a vegetarian in the party. Two courses served to the vegetarian,entree and plat, were virtually identical.
Good: Sauces were excellent.
Not so good: dessert was beetroot scoops with raspberry sorbet. While the sorbet was excellent, beets didn't work.

It was a very nice way to spend our first full day in the region. The setting is lovely and the small village of Bages is charming. The presentation is gorgeous, the bread was outstanding, but overall it fell short of our expectations.
