2016 Chateau Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac

About The Wine

The 2016 Lynch-Moussas, is made up of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Merlot. Purple color, expressive nose with fruity blackberry, blackcurrant, floral, exotic wood, cedar and tobacco perfumes. On the palate, this wine is fresh, fruity, lively, with very elegant, deep, and high quality tannins with a long finish.

About The Château

The Château was founded in the 18th century by a member of the Lynch Family. The origin of the “Moussas” name can be trace back to the 16th century. In 1919 the property was purchased by the Castéja family, at that time also owner of Duhart-Milon and later was inherited by Emile Castéja. Philippe Castéja, Emile Castéja’s son, has been in charge of the property and its vineyards since. Château Lynch-Moussas is a typical Pauillac exhibiting a dark colour, a fruitful bouquet, a lot of softness with ripe tannins.

Food Pairings

This Bordeaux is best paired with Japanese style steak, lamb chops or a mushroom risotto.

The Wine Down

This wine is amazing now and will age even better. I can’t wait to try again in 10 to 15 years.
