Pauillac, Chateau Lynch-Moussas 2015 5. Cru

DKK 349,00 inkl. moms

Pauillac, Chateau Lynch-Moussas 2015 5. Cru 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. Drink: 2020-2040.

Score: 92/94 Neal Martin

Extremely well done for the vintage in Pauillac with attractive dried flower, currant and light stone character. Medium to full body. Fine tannins. Mar 2016.

Score: 92/93 James Suckling

Lynch Moussas var i det 18. århundrede ejet af af grev Lynch i Pauillac. Siden er det blevet delt i to ejendomme. Lynch Moussas og Lynch Bages. Bygningerne blev beholdt af Lynch Moussas, samt det meste af jord og vinmarkerne. Denne store ejendom på mere end to hundrede acres blev klassificeret som 5. Cru i 1855 klassifikation.

Jean Casteja, ejer af Château Duhart-Milon købte ejendommen i 1919 og drev den indtil 1969, da Emile Casteja købte det til sine brødre. Herefter startede en masse forandringer, med en gennemgribende renovering og modernisering af både slottet, vinmarker og vineri. Siden da er kvaliteten steget år for år, og siden 2001 har man, for at højne kvaliteten af Grand Vin endnu mere, fremstillet en 2.vin Les Hauts Lynch Moussas.

Lynch Moussas af i dag er kendt for deres dybe og mørke farve, duften er fyldt med noter af røde frugtige frugter. I smagen mærker man de bløde modne tanniner, efterfulgt af modene solbær og kraftig spændstig frugt, der er så karakteristisk for de store Pauillac-vine. Vinene er allerede fra unge meget velsmagende, men har som alle store Pauillac-vine potentiale til et langt liv i kælderen.
