- Closure: Cork
The name Lynch - pronounced “lansh” in French - shows that it once belonged to the Lynch family from Ireland one of whom became mayor of Bordeaux during the First Empire; likewise a member of the present owner’s family was also made mayor of this town. Châteu Lynch-Moussas, situated on a lovely gravel outcrop very close to the village of Artigues and of châteaux Grand Puy and Batailley, forms part of the magnificent classified growth region surrounding the town of Pauillac which extends from Lafite and Duhart-Milon in the north to Batailley, Pichon and Latour in the south. This growth produces full-bodied and highly aromatic wines with great savour and rich perfumes due to the high percentage of 3/4 Cabernet to 1/4 Merlot which its vineyard consists of. To achieve this, every modern technique has been adapted to the traditional way of winemaking and these have always been applied with very great care to achieve the highest possible quality. The property belongs to the Castéja family who have owned grand crus in the commune of Pauillac, Gironde, without a break for more than three hundred years. Château Lynch-Moussas is a member of the Union des Grands Crus.

Tasting Note: Probably the best effort I have tasted from Lynch-Moussas ... in my career! Deep ruby/purple, with a sweet nose of creme de cassis intermixed with licorice, dried herbs, and vanilla, the wine is rich in fruit, has good glycerin, silky tannin, and a nice, spicy, layered finish. This will certainly have broad appeal, and it is good to see this property turn out something this interesting. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2015. 88 points
