Chateau Lynch-Moussas 2015: a Pauillac with supple tannins

Chateau Lynch-Moussas is a Fifth Classified Growth in the Pauillac appellation. The 55-hectare vineyard grows in silica-gravel soils. The 2015 vintage harvest took place from September 17 to October 1st. The wine is aged in barrels for an average of 14 to 18 months. The Chateau Lynch-Moussas 2015 is made from a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot.

At tasting, the Chateau Lynch-Moussas 2015 develops raspberry and wild strawberry aromas. When aerated, there are well-integrated woody and forest floor notes. On the palate, the wine is moderately full-bodied, offering supple tannins and a lovely acidity. The Chateau Lynch-Moussas 2015 reveals a spicy and extremely persistent finish.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Lynch Moussas is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot cropped at 44 hl/ha between 17 September and 1 October. It has a very controlled bouquet at first with tightly wound raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, the oak nicely integrated and some lovely undergrowth aromas surfacing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, the acidity well judged, leading to a spice-tinged finish that lingers long in the mouth. It is a very fine follow-up to the 2014 last year, with a freshness and class that I did not find conveyed ten years ago.
