An exceptional red wine from Pauillac
Chateau Lynch-Moussas is a wine produced in the Pauillac appellation. The area of the property is 55 hectares and its grape varieties are 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot. The average age of the vines is 35 years.
The Chateau Lynch-Moussas 2010 is one of the best wines produced by this château. The color is a deep ruby with purple reflections. The nose reveals aromas of black fruits, currants, figs and plums. The mouth is meaty, well-rounded, with fairly powerful tannins. This wine has a very good potential for aging.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2010 is a strong effort and one of their best wines in a generation or more. Some toasty oak seems relatively strong, but not excessive. Deep ruby/purple, notes of black fruits as well as red currants, fig and plum are all present. The wine has a good bit of flesh, fat, but then shuts down in the finish, with moderately high tannins. By all counts, this is an excellent Pauillac that just needs a few years of cellaring to resolve some of its oak and tannin, but has the potential to be outstanding if given sufficient bottle age. It should last for two decades.
