The estate is located near the eponymous commune of Moussas in the Pauillac area of the Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). Its origins date back to 1749, when Elisabeth Drouillard, the wife of Thomas-Michel Lynch, who was of Irish origin, inherited an estate called "Bourdieu de Batges" from her father. The size of the estate expanded to 150 hectares until finally, in 1824, the history of the Lynch family came to an end and a division into Château Lynch-Bages and Château Lynch-Moussas took place. In the Bordeaux classification of 1855, it was ranked fifth (Cinquième Cru Classé). Château Lynch-Moussas came into the possession of the Borie-Manoux family empire (Castéja) in 1919.
