The 2011 Lynch Moussas was served after Batailley instead of before...a bold statement! It was picked between 12th and 21st September and consists of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot and cropped at just 36hl/ha. It has a very fine bouquet with pure dark berries a touch of tobacco and cedar; nicely composed with a touch of cassis evolving after five minutes in the glass. The palate is very well balanced with more succulent tannins than usual on the entry. This Pauillac has good weight and fine balance with the thread of acidity nicely entwined through that blackberry and touch of pain grille. This is a bold Pauillac certainly a Lynch Moussas that desires to transcend the limitations of the growing season. Tasted April 2012.

This is very rich for the vintage with a dried-berry and chocolate character. Full and rich with velvety tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Intense and decadent for the vintage. Very well done.

Intense and decadent for the vintage. Very well done. I like it better than the 2010. Better in 2018.

70% cabernet sauvignon and 30% merlot. 57 hectare estate on gravelly soil. Aged in 55% new French oak. Deep ruby core boasting aromas of red and purple fruits on the nose.

Deep ruby core boasting aromas of red and purple fruits on the nose. The palate is already very elegant and complex with a terrific balance of fruit and earth components and a smooth well-integrated tannin profile. Incredibly balanced with a long silky finish. One of the vintage stars of the region and one to seek out upon release. I was quite impressed by this wine! Enjoy 2017-2030.
