Winemaker Notes

Château Lynch-Moussas, situated on a lovely gravel outcrop very close to the village of Artigues and of châteaux Grand Puy and Batailley, forms part of the magnificent classified growth region surrounding the town of Pauillac which extends from Lafite and Duhart-Milon in the north, to Batailley, Pichon and Latour in the south. The property belongs to the Castéja family who have owned grand crus in the commune of Pauillac, Gironde, without a break for more than three hundred years.

Chateau Lynch-Moussas' wine originates from the estate's 57 hectares of vineyards morcellated through the commune of Pauillac. The soil for these vineyards is typical of the Pauillac consisting mostly of gravel over a limestone subsoil. The vines are divided between Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) and Merlot (30%).

Critical Acclaim

RP 89
The Wine Advocate

A classic Pauillac, this is an obvious major improvement from the proprietors, the Casteja family. Sweet vanilla, tobacco leaf, black currant, licorice, and camphor are all present in this full-bodied, rich, moderately tannic wine, which is still under the radar and fairly priced. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.

WS 88
Wine Spectator

Currant and berries, with hints of flowers, follow through to a medium body, with silky tannins and a delicate finish. Balanced and attractive for the vintage.

Chateau Lynch-Moussas
The Irishman John Lynch acquired the estate together with the vineyards of what is today the neighbouring Château Lynch-Bages and had the chateau built in the 18th century. The Castéja family, proprietor in Pauillac since the 16th century,acquired Château Lynch-Moussas in the beginning of the 20th century. From the 1970's onwards until today, major investments have been made at the Chateau and in the vineyard, significantly improving quality. Chateau Lynch-Moussas is the only Castéja-Chateau on the left bank not exclusively distributed through Borie-Manoux but through the "place de Bordeaux".

Known for bold reds, crisp whites, and distinctive sparkling and fortified wines, Spain has embraced international varieties and wine styles while continuing to place the primary emphasis upon its own native grapes. Though the country’s climate is diverse, it is generally warm to hot. In the center of the country lies a vast, dry plateau known as the Meseta Central, characterized by extremely hot summers and frequent drought. Because of its location on the Iberian Peninsula, many of Spain’s wine regions are located on or near the milder coast, either of the Bay of Biscay to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the northwest, or the Mediterranean sea to the south and east. Each of these regions has its own unique soil, climate, and topography, as well as principal grape varieties.

In the cool, damp northwest region of Galicia, refreshing white Albariño and Verdejo dominate, though elsewhere the most popular wines are generally red. Rioja is Spain’s best-known region, where earthy, age-worthy reds are made from Tempranillo and Garnacha (Grenache), as well as rich, nutty whites from Viura. Ribera del Duero produces opulent, fruity, top-quality wines from almost exclusively Tempranillo. Priorat, a sub-region of Catalonia, blends Garnacha with Cariñena (Carignan) to make bold, full-bodied wines with a hint of earthiness. Catalonia is also home to Cava, a sparkling wine made in the traditional method but from indigenous varieties. Sherry, Spain’s famous fortified wine, is produced in a wide range of styles from dry to lusciously sweet at the country’s southern tip in Jerez. Since the 1990s, international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc have been steadily increasing in importance in several regions.
