This is a vastly improved estate, making impressively good wines in recent vintages. The wine is structured and tannic but also packed with blackcurrant fruits, good acidity and spice. It will take time to develop, so drink from 2025 at the earliest. 94 POINTS, WINE ENTHUSIAST

The 2015 Lynch Moussas is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot cropped at 44 hl/ha between 17 September and 1 October. It has a very controlled bouquet at first with tightly wound raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, the oak nicely integrated and some lovely undergrowth aromas surfacing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, the acidity well judged, leading to a spice-tinged finish that lingers long in the mouth. It is a very fine follow-up to the 2014 last year, with a freshness and class that I did not find conveyed ten years ago. 94 POINTS, THE WINE ADVOCATE
