Château Lynch-Moussas

The Château Lynch-Moussas is located on the large plateaus to the west of the Pauillac appellation. Its name is inspired by the plateau where most of its vineyards are located. 

The Château Lynch-Moussas was named Fifth Grand Cru Classé in the famous 1855 classification for the Paris Universal Exhibition.

The Castéja family acquired it at the beginning of the 20th century, and since 2001 it has been managed by Philippe Castéja, who has since given birth to great wines renowned for their finesse and structure.

The Château Lynch-Moussas is based on a 62-hectare vineyard planted on gravel soils, with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot. The wines are aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, with around 55% new wood.

The estate produces a Second wine, Les Hauts de Lynch-Moussas.

The Château Lynch-Moussas offer fleshy, concentrated wines with a fine tannic structure. Built for ageing, they are also accessible in their youth.

Description Château Lynch-Moussas 2022.

In spite of rain in November and December, the three first months of the year are a lot dryer than usual.

Spring is marked by 5 days of heavy frost. Flowering mid-May is quick and homogeneous for all grape varietals.

June sees very high temperatures, heavy rains, important storms, all this followed by a very dry July with grapes turning colour very rapidly during the middle of the month.

This Summer was extremely dry and warm. The warmest since 1947.

Picking started early September and finished before the end of the month. It was very concentrated grapes with extremely small berries which have given these wines with deep dark colours, this beautiful maturity, and extreme richness, all these stamps of this Exceptional Vintage.
