Les Hauts de Lynch-Moussas, the second wine of Château Lynch-Moussas, classified as a Grand Cru Classé in 1855, was created in 2001 by Philippe Castéja succeeding to his father, Emile. The name comes from the name of the vineyards situated just above the estate. On the sorting table, essentially the grapes from the youngest vines are used to make the wine which is however elaborated with the same care and same high standards as for the “Premier Vin”.
