Varietal: Merlot / Cabernet Sauvignon/ Cabernet Franc
Vintage: 2016 Colour: Red Style: Dry
Producer: Chateau Lynch Moussas
From Château Lynch-Moussas this excellent 2nd wine has benefited from the meteoric upwards rise of the whole estate. Quality has never been so high. The 2016 has just been released, and the vintage is now seen as one of the greatest in the last 40 years.
Located in the north of Bordeaux and at the edge of the Gironde estuary, the soil is mainly composed of gravels, i.e. gravels that are popular in viticulture's because they are known for producing qualitative wines.
Plots here are vinified separately and those sites (usually younger vines) that not go into Lynch-Moussas go into les Hauts.
Black fruit notes with cassis and blackberry, followed by fragrances that vary between vanilla and roasting.
