A Grand Cru Classé of Pauillac, located on the left bank of Bordeaux, Château Lynch-Moussas has produced a brilliant 2018 vintage.
The 2018 vintage required plenty of work in the vineyard. The strong climatic contrasts of the year subjected the vineyard to a rainy spring, which brought strong mildew pressure. A beautiful summer finally arrived in July, shining on until October. The grape harvest began on September 18th and ended on October 10th, yielding magnificent fruit, with each grape having reached perfect ripeness.
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (72%) and Merlot (28%), the Château Lynch-Moussas 2018 offers the expression of a great Pauillac red wine. At the tasting, the wine presents an intensely deep colour, while the aromatic bouquet is enhanced by pure fruit. The palate is well-rounded with great amplitude and a structure defined by perfectly integrated and very present tannins. This wine lingers long at the end of the palate. A great Pauillac red wine from an exceptional vintage.
The 2018 Lynch Moussas is deep garnet-purple colored and begins with cedary scents giving way to cassis, warm plums and raspberry coulis with hints of oolong tea, Marmite toast, sautéed herbs and charcuterie. The full-bodied palate gives a good core of muscular fruit with firm, grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long and savory.
