What are the specificities of Château Lynch-Moussas?

Renowned, Château Lynch-Moussas belonged to the Count Jean-Baptiste Lynch in the 18th century. Much larger than today, the estate was divided, giving birth to the Château Lynch-Bages.

 

In 1919 the estate became the property of the Casteja family, already owners of several Médoc estates, and of Borie Manaux. Vine growing is a family story in the Château since each generation of the family has worked hard to produce a specific wine. The year 1970 was marked by the total overhaul of the estate.

The vineyard offers in tasting a wine made up of 2 grape varieties:

  • Cabernet Sauvignon 75%
  • Merlot 25%

 

The 140 hectares of the estate are not exclusively devoted to the vine, as a large part is dedicated to greenery as well as the forest. Like most Châteaux in Bordeaux, the vines are planted in different communes of the appellation, thus benefiting from a terroir made up of gravel, sand and clay on limestone soils.

Vinified in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats, the wine of the Château Lynch-Moussas is then aged in 60% new oak barrels for an average of 18 months. Annual production is around 200,000 bottles.

The vines give birth to a powerful, rich and elegant wine. The Château Lynch-Moussas has benefited from the greatest care by the Casteja family for 100 years allowing it to shine alongside the Grands Crus of the Pauillac appellation.

In order to best express the potential of its terroir, the winery also produces a second wine, "Les Hauts de Lynch-Moussas", made from the youngest vines.
