Winery Info/ Brand
The Lynch Moussas estate was owned since the 18th century by the Comte Lynch in Pauillac, then was divised in two parts: Lynch Moussa and Lynch Bages. The building was kept by Lynch Moussa , as well as most of lands and vineyards. This great estate from more than two hundred acres was classified as a Classed Growth by the1855 classification.Mr Jean Casteja, owner of the family-owned Château Duhart-Milon bought the estate in 1919 and run it until 1969 when Emile Casteja bought it to his brothers. A wind of change starts blowing since that date, revealing a modernized Lynch Moussa with a renewed vineyard, rebuilt cellars and vat rooms. His 60 hectares-wide vineyard is carefully brought up in order to allow the today’s expression of unity and variety of a terroir composed with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot: de-branching, de-leafing, green harvests have been settled these last years to achieve a complete top maturity of high quality grapes.
Region Info/ Origin
Pauillac is home to several of the world's most famous wine and the region lies in an inauspicious small village in Médoc. Pauillac sprawls over the land size of about 8.8 square miles, is highly optimised for wine production and accounts for a rather disproportionate amount of fine, expensive wine in Bordeaux.
