WE 96
Wine Enthusiast
Under the ownership of the Castéja family for a century, this estate is definitely on the up. This latest vintage shows great structure and firm tannins to go with ripe black currant fruits. It is a fine wine that is going to age well.
Barrel Sample: 94-96
JS 94
James Suckling

This is a solid Pauillac with a medium to full body and chewy tannins that are polished and energetic . Plenty of blackcurrant, lemon and wet-earth character. A little tight at the end. Needs at least three or four years of bottle age to open. Will age very nicely.

WH 94
Whisky Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2019 Lynch Moussas leaps from the glass with vibrant red and black currant scents, followed by baked blackberries, chocolate box and camphor hints and a touch of smoked meats. Medium-bodied, the palate is chock-full of muscular, ripe black fruits, supported by firm, grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and savory. This wine may take a little longer to come around than some of its 2019 peers, but it will be worth the wait.
Barrel Sample: 92-94
D 92
This vintage marks the 100th anniversary of Lynch Moussas under the Castéja family, who arrived at the property in 1919. They have worked hard to establish a more consistent performance over recent vintages, and certainly here you have plenty of impact, with silky tannins, deeply glossed blackberry and cassis fruits, touches of grilled cedar and strong coffee bean on the finish. Low temperature fermentation saw things kept at under 26°C at all times, helping to control the tannin extract from the fruit after the hot summer. An impressive performance from this estate.
Barrel Sample: 92
JD 91
Jeb Dunnuck

Mulled red and black fruits, smoked tobacco, sandalwood, lead pencil, and spring flower notes all emerge from the 2019 Château Lynch-Moussas, a medium-bodied, elegnat Pauillac with ripe tannins, good acidity, and a focused, concentrated style that will reward 4-5 years of bottle age. This outstanding 2019 will have two decades or more of prime drinking. Best After 2026

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A rather rich, dramatic rendition of this estate, the 2019 Lynch-Moussas bursts with aromas of dark berry fruit, pencil shavings and toasty new oak. Full-bodied, ample and muscular, with a fleshy core of fruit, succulent acids and ripe, powdery tannins that assert themselves on the finish, it will reward a bit of bottle age with flamboyant drinking. Best After 2025 Rating 91+

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Offers mulled plum, fig and blackberry fruit flavors that unfurl slowly over a velvety structure, while dark tobacco, cast iron and bay leaf details emerge through the slightly dusty finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2023.

Chateau. Lynch-Moussas, France
The Irishman John Lynch acquired the estate together with the vineyards of what is today the neighbouring Chateau Lynch-Bages and had the chateau built in the 18th century. The Castéja family, proprietor in Pauillac since the 16th century,acquired Chateau Lynch-Moussas in the beginning of the 20th century. From the 1970's onwards until today, major investments have been made at the Chateau and in the vineyard, significantly improving quality. Chateau Lynch-Moussas is the only Castéja-Chateau on the left bank not exclusively distributed through Borie-Manoux but through the "place de Bordeaux".

Pauillac Wine

Bordeaux, France

The leader on the Left Bank in number of first growth classified producers within its boundaries, Pauillac has more than any of the other appellations, at three of the five. Chateau Lafite Rothschild and Mouton Rothschild border St. Estephe on its northern end and Chateau Latour is at Pauillac’s southern end, bordering St. Julien.

While the first growths are certainly some of the better producers of the Left Bank, today they often compete with some of the “lower ranked” producers (second, third, fourth, fifth growth) in quality and value. The Left Bank of Bordeaux subscribes to an arguably outdated method of classification that goes back to 1855. The finest chateaux in that year were judged on the basis of reputation and trading price; changes in rank since then have been miniscule at best. Today producers such as Chateau Pontet-Canet, Chateau Grand Puy-Lacoste, Chateau Lynch-Bages, among others (all fifth growth) offer some of the most outstanding wines in all of Bordeaux.

Defining characteristics of fine wines from Pauillac (i.e. Cabernet-based Bordeaux Blends) include inky and juicy blackcurrant, cedar or cigar box and plush or chalky tannins.

Layers of gravel in the Pauillac region are key to its wines’ character and quality. The layers offer excellent drainage in the relatively flat topography of the region allowing water to run off into “jalles” or streams, which subsequently flow off into the Gironde.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
