2018 Château Lynch-Moussas  (Pauillac) 92

The juicy, black currant, herb and tobacco leaf character really come through this year. The wine is medium/full-bodied with ripe tannins and ample freshness to the blackberry and cassis palate. This should be easy to drink within five years of release. The wine blends 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot. 91-93 Pts

2017 Château Lynch-Moussas  (Pauillac) 90

Medium-bodied, with a top note of tobacco, cedar, pepper and herbs that comes along with the fresh, bright, crisp, spicy red fruits. Classic in nature, give this at least 5 or more years and it could be an even better wine.

2014 Château Lynch-Moussas  (Pauillac) 90

Forward, already open and showing its cedar, tobacco, spicy cassis character with not much effort. This is easy to drink, and will be even better with a few years of age.

Perhaps the best wine I've ever tasted from Lynch Moussas. A healthy dose of cassis, oak, tobacco and spice box create the nose. The wine is medium/full bodied, with ripe, dark red fruits, freshness and length. Clearly, this should be even better with age. The wine was produced from a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot.

Light, bright and crisp, the wine showcases crunchy red berries and a spicy cranberry finish. From a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Merlot, making it a contender for the highest percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon placed in the blend in the history of the estate, this wine will be best in its youth. 85-87 Pts

2010 Château Lynch-Moussas  (Pauillac) 89

Lots of blackberry, cassis and tobacco coupled with an equal amount of tannin that makes this a wine that needs at least 5 years in the cellar before it comes together. This is a good value wine for Pauillac. The wine was produced from a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot.

Starting to show its secondary side with all the tobacco and cedar notes, the wine is medium bodied, earth, leafy, minty and bright. The wine is clearly ready for prime time drinking.

Produced from a blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot, this medium bodied wine already displays some tobacco, cassis, blackberry and earthy characteristics. Not mature, but accessible, you can drink this now, or age it for up to a decade.

2008 Château Lynch-Moussas  (Pauillac) 87

Bright, red, crisp, crunchy red berries make up the core of this wine. Fresh, medium-bodied and old school, this classic luncheon claret leaves you with a bite of cranberry, cassis, green olive, herb, pepper and tobacco in the finish.

2003 Château Lynch-Moussas  (Pauillac) 87

Fully mature, medium bodied, with more going on in the nose, with its tobacco, leaf, cedar, cassis and cranberry notes, than on the palate. Strict in style for 2003, there is no reason to age this any longer.

Fully mature, medium bodied, correct Pauillac, with ample cedar, tobacco, cigar box, herbs and bright, crisp, red fruit. A little austere, but fun, this is probably at peak today.

1996 Château Lynch-Moussas  (Pauillac) 85

Fully mature, medium bodied, lighter styled Pauillac, with a crisp, cranberry, cassis, earth, cedar and tobacco character. There is some rusticity in the sharp, peppery finish. I like the wine more on the nose, than on the palate.
