Château Lynch Moussas 2016

Bordeaux - Pauillac - 5e Cru Classé - Red Wine -

Château Lynch Moussas is a 5th Classified Growth of Pauillac property of the Casteja family. The 2016 vintage is a perfect vintage in Bordeaux and Pauillac, the Château Lynch Moussas is no exception to the rule.

The property covers 45 hectares planted with 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot on one of Pauillac's richest terroirs. This 2015 vintage comes from a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot.

In a beautiful deep purple color, on the nose we find notes of red fruits (raspberry and strawberry). In the mouth, the wines are light and full-bodied, the tannins are silky and supple. The finish is long lingering with beautiful spicy notes

A superb success of the Château noted 92-94 / 100 by Robert Parker

Wine Advocate-Parker :

The 2016 Lynch Moussas is a blend of 17% Merlot an 83% Cabernet Sauvignon cropped at 48 hectoliters per hectare between 3 and 19 October. Matured in 60% new oak and the remainder one year old, this has a concentrated bouquet that offers tobacco-infused black fruit, briary and then with aeration, veins of pencil lead. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin cloaked in plenty of black fruit, quite spicy for Lynch Moussas with a touch of orange rind developing towards the finish. I appreciate the salinity on the aftertaste here. This is excellent and may well surpass the impressive 2015 last year.

Le conseil de 12bouteilles : Decant 1 to 2 hours before serving. Serve with grilled meats or a cheese platter.
