Chateau Pontac-Lynch is a family-owned winery located in the better parts of the Margaux appellation. Chateau Margaux is located in the north of the estate, Chateau Palmer in the West and Chateau d'Issan in the south so there is not much of a doubts on this statement! The building was erected in 1720 by Count de Lynch who used the estate as a hunting pavilion, but it was the latter owner "de Pontac" who gave the estate its current name. Since 1952, it's the Bondon family who owns the winery and today it's Marie-Christine, the 3rd generation of winemakers who is responsible for wine production.
Chateau Pontac-Lynch is a red wine from the Margaux appelation produced from 40% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot grapes. The grapes are harvested by hand and the fermentation takes place in concrete tanks by grape variety. The finished wine is aged one year in oak barrels, half on new and half on one year old barrels.
The grapes for the cru bourgeois Château Pontac Lynch were harvested manually, with a selective sorting at the winery in order to obtain wines of great elegance. Fermentation took place in temperature-controlled concrete tanks and the wine was aged in 40% new French oak barrels for 12 months.
