Reviews of Château Lynch Moussas 2016
The terroir of Château Lynch-Bages now covers almost 60 hectares, with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. The care provided to the vines are made with delicacy, where the harvest by hand, stripping and suckering that allow for the mature grapes and a very high quality.
On the sorting table, the grapes are carefully selected to ensure that only the best will be put into the tanks. The vinification is done in thermo-regulated tanks and breeding in barrels 60% new for 16 to 18 months. In addition, the wines benefit from the valuable advice of the oenologist Denis Dubourdieu.
Château Lynch-Bages 2013: a soft red and melts under the tongue
The wine Lynch Bages 2013 is a beautiful dark color, and is known by its vegetal nose and marked by red fruits. On the palate the wine is fleshy and full, with a lot of roundness and ripe tannins. Then come notes of blackcurrant, which is traditionally found in the Great Pauillac, for a great length that fits on the tongue.
A tasty wine that shows in his youth, but has some very nice secret to reveal to those who wait.

It had an intense colour. Notes of coffee and wood taste. Fabulous and fresh.
I had the pleasure of taking it at a barbecue.
