Les Hauts de Lynch-Moussas, AOC Haut MédocRegular price €35.00
‘a success in this vintage with depth of flavour and cigar box notes…an enjoyable Pauillac character’
89/10, Decanter, April 2017
The Haut-Médoc is home to Bordeaux’s most prestigious communes: Pauillac, Margaux, Saint-Julien, and Saint-Estèphe. Les Hauts is the ‘second wine’ of Château Lynch-Moussas, produced from younger Cabernet and Merlot vines than the top wine, and from different plots, but with a definite Pauillac character.
‘The 2016 Les Hauts de Lynch Moussas is a blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon and 32% Merlot. That Merlot comes through quite strongly on the nose with black cherry and blackcurrant aromas, the oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity, good body with a harmonous, cedar and allspice tinged finish.’
