Chateau Lynch Moussas was originally owned by Count Jean-Baptiste Lynch of Ireland in the 18th century. At the time, the estate was much larger than it is today.  This left bank estate was so large in those days, it was eventually divided into two parts; half of the estate gave birth to Chateau Lynch Bages and the remaining portion took the name Chateau Lynch Moussas.  The estate has been owned and managed by the prominent Casteja family who own and operate other Bordeaux estates. 

The estate covers about 60 hectares in the Pauillac appellation and is planted to 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot.  It is one of the few classified left bank appellations planted with only two grape varietals.  

Tasting Notes

Top notes of tobacco, cedar, pepper and herbs along with fresh, bright, crisp, spicy red fruits. Medium bodied on te palate with fine grained tannins.  Classic in nature.  For those who are patient, 5 or more years will reward the palate, but if you want to drink this young, make sure to decant it.  

Method

Yields are close to 55 hectoliters per hectare.  Vinification takes place in temperature controlled, stainless steel vats. Malolactic fermentation takes place in vat.  The wine of Lynch Moussas is aged in 60% new, French oak barrels for an average of 18 months.
