Marks and reviews
A fine Pauillac wine with supple tannins and a rich aromatic palette
In the 18th century, Chateau Lynch-Moussas, like Chateau Lynch-Bages, was owned by the famous Lynch family, who were originally from Ireland. The Castéja family, owners since the 16th century in the Pauillac region, acquired this chateau at the beginning of the 20th century.
A benchmark among fine Pauillac wines, Chateau Lynch-Moussas watches over a 62-hectare vineyard that rests on a gravel and clay soil.
Vinification and aging
Fermentation and maceration for 15 to 20 days in temperature-controlled tanks. The wine is aged for 18 months in oak barrels (50% new and 50% first-fill barrels).
Cabernet Sauvignon (79%)
