Chateau Lynch Moussas Pauillac 2008

Chateau Lynch Moussas Pauillac 2008

Lynch Moussas 2008 produced an impressive wine in the underrated 2008 vintage. Robert Parker awarded it 88-89 while Wine Enthusiast gave it 89 and described it as being ‘intensely spicy wine, full of exotic flavours, dried prunes, figs and a powerful layer of cinnamon.’ Created from a classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Lynch Moussas has always made a traditional style of Pauillac and is renowned for its longevity and complexity.

Taste

Medium-red with garnet showing at the rim, the Lynch Moussas 2008 is now at its peak. The bouquet offers brambles, cherries, vanilla smoke and a touch of cigar. The medium-bodied palate is broad and complex, with red and black berries complimented by touches of minerals, mocha, green peppers, and earth. The tannins on the finish are rounded and there’s a lovely tang of cranberries at the end.

About the Producer

Lynch Moussas lies in Paulliac and borders Lynch Bages. Until 1824 it was part of the same property as Lynch Bages and like Lynch Bages it was granted Cinquieme Cru Classé (fifth growth) status in the 1855 classification. Its 55 hectares of vines lay on silica and gravel soils over limestone soils which impart the mineral and pencil lead character that is associated with Paulliac’s finest wines. Lynch Moussas’s wines lost some of their lustre in the 1970s and 1980s, but investment and a re-focusing on quality has put them back in top form.
