Château Pontac-Lynch

Château Pontac-Lynch

The 10 hectare Château Pontac-Lynch enjoys a privileged location in the heart of the Margaux appellation. Neighbouring the famous Château Margaux, with Châteaux Palmer and Rauzan to the north and the west, and with the vineyards of Château D'Issan and Château Marquis De Terme to the south, there is no doubting the quality of Pontac-Lynch's terroir.

In 1720, Count Lynch built the present house as a hunting lodge. Later, it became the property of M. de Pontac, director of the city of Bordeaux, who gave his name to the property. Since 1952, the estate has belonged to the Bung family and today it is run by Marie-Christine Bung, the third generation to head up the operation.

The soil consists of clay and limestone with a layer of gravel on the surface, allowing a very typical Médoc selection of grape varieties to thrive. The vineyards are planted to 45% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Château Pontac-Lynch applies a philosophy of highly sustainable agriculture to its property, and since 2010 it has used less pesticide than any other Médoc estate.
