The Château was founded in the 18th century by a member of the Lynch Family. We can trace the origin of the "Moussas" name back to the 16th century. In 1919 the property was purchased by the Castéja family, at that time also owner of Duhart-Milon and later was inherited by Emile Castéja. Philippe Castéja, Emile Castéja's son, has been in charge of the property and its vineyards since. Château Lynch-Moussas is a typical Pauillac exhibiting a dark colour, a fruitful bouquet, a lot of softness with ripe tannins.

Lynch-Moussas is Cabernet Sauvignon dominant and the wine is aged in 60% new oak barrels for between 12 and 18 months. The wine is rich in black fruits and displays prominent notes of vanilla. For a Pauillac, Lynch-Moussas contains a relatively high proportion of Merlot and is consequently a softer, silkier and lusher wine than many of its neighbors.

Tasting Notes

The 2018 vintage is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot. Garnet-purple color. Lovely complex nose revealing roses, chocolate, blueberry and blackberry perfumes along with scrubland and smoke notes. On the palate, this wine is fresh with a mineral profile.

Food Pairing

Risotto with ceps, leg of lamb, beef fillet, doe stew, and mutton chops.
