Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

Count Lynch associated his name in the 18th century with the property of his in-laws. The origin of Moussas can be traced back to the 16th century. Until the 19th century, the property was made up of three large plateaux: Madrac, Moussas and Bages. In 1830, the Bages plateau was sold; in 1848 the Vasquez family bought Lynch-Moussas, followed by the Castéja family in 1919, then also owners of Château Duhart Milon.
