Wine EnthusiastThis is a vastly improved estate, making impressively good wines in recent vintages. The wine is structured and tannic but also packed with black-currant fruits, good acidity and spice. It will take time to develop, so drink from 2025 at the earliest.

Wine AdvocateThe 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.

Wine SpectatorThis is slightly taut, defined by ample cedar and sandalwood notes that have the upper hand on the more modest red currant and damson plum flavors. Shows a sanguine edge through the finish, which has good length. For fans of the old-school style. Best from 2020 through 2029. 15,000 cases made.
