The winery is located near the eponymous municipality of Moussas in the Pauillac area of the Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). Its origins date back to 1749, when Elisabeth Drouillard, the wife of Irish-born Thomas-Michel Lynch, inherited an estate called "Bourdieu de Batges" from her father. The size of the estate increased to 150 hectares until the Lynch family's story finally came to an end in 1824, when it was divided into Château Lynch-Bages and Château Lynch-Moussas. In the 1855 Bordeaux classification, it was awarded fifth place (Cinquième Grand Cru Classé). Château Lynch-Moussas came into the possession of the Borie-Manoux family empire in 1919 (see the Borie/Castéja family history there).
