Chateau Lynch-MoussasAll products from this vendor
Winery "Château Lynch-Moussas" has a category "5ème Cru Classé" and is located in the south-west of the Pauillac appellation. The Château Lynch-Moussas winery has been meticulously restored over the past 30 years and today produces high quality claret. The impressive winery was built in 1850, but a turning point in the history of Château Lynch-Moussas was 1969 when the estate was acquired by Emile Castéja, owner of Château Batailley and wholesaler of Borie-Manoux. Extensive replanting of vines and modernization of wine cellars have significantly improved the quality of the wine. Wine "Lynch-Moussas" is a mixture, the main part of which is Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, and the wine itself is aged 60% in new oak barrels from 12 to 18 months. The wine has a rich aronia taste, and vanilla is clearly felt in the aroma. Wine "Lynch-Moussas" contains a relatively high proportion of Merlot grapes for Pauillac, and is also softer, silky and strong wine than most of its neighbors.
Cabernet FrancAll products from this varietal

The home of three out of the five cult wine houses of the Grand Cru classification - Lafitte-Rothschild, Latour and Mouton-Rothschild. The soil is poor - big rocks in the gravel makes it difficult for the vine roots to get water but this allows them to gather lots of valuable minerals on the way. The taste of fresh fruit, wood and spicy tannins combined with a rich aroma of cigar boxes and dark berries are the qualities that make this appellation a true value. Winemakers use all the grapes allowed in the region - Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot.
Bordeaux wines are considered to be the most prestige and renowned in the world. The region is mainly known for its dry red wines made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes, and one can almost always find the word Château (French for „castle”) on Bordeaux wine labels. In order to understand the style of wine most desirable for your taste, it is recommended to try different samples from the Left as well as the Right Bank of The Gironde. Both banks differ not only with different soil, but also with the share of specific wines. There are several classifications in Bordeaux but the main one, introduced in 1855, hasn’t changed since and still impacts wine prices nowadays. A few years later, in 1936, an alternative classification system - Crus Bourgeois - was established. Bordeaux is known for a commerce praxis called en primeur - it means that a buyer can purchase wines immediately after harvest and prior to production for a substantially lower price, thus obtaining the opportunity to sell them for a larger profit later in the future. Bordeaux wines can be described as big, complex and with a strong character, but very friendly at the same time so that each and every wine lover could find something tasty and suitable for a great wine night.
