Chateau Lynch-Moussas 2016

 1 Bottle (750ML)

A great, aromatic and corpulent Pauillac 

Lynch-Moussas is located in the Pauillac appellation. Its 57 hectare vineyard has Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) and Merlot (30%) planted. The Casteja family has owned the property since the beginning of the 20th century.

Lynch-Moussas 2016 is a blend of 17% Merlot and 83% Cabernet Sauvignon harvested between October 3 and 19th, 2016. It immediately displays its intensity with its purple-ink color. The nose is expressive, highlighting fresh black fruit aromas. The palate is firm, without being aggressive with a nice full body. The tannins are ripe and well-integrated. The finish is long and the wine has beautiful aging potential. A great wine!

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.
