2010 Lynch-Moussas, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1067104 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark One of the chateaus owned by négociant Borie-Manoux, Lynch-Moussas has produced a fine, stylish 2010, which is firmly based on Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit is rich and ripe, dominated by a blackberry note and underpinned by tannins. This is a chateau to watch. Inner quote mark (2/2013)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Aromas of fresh herbs and berry with chocolate powder undertones. Full and very velvety with a lovely finish. Needs at least five years to soften. Inner quote mark (2/2013)

Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2010 is a strong effort and one of their best wines in a generation or more. Some toasty oak seems relatively strong, but not excessive. Deep ruby/purple, notes of black fruits as well as red currants, fig and plum are all present. The wine has a good bit of flesh, fat, but then shuts down in the finish, with moderately high tannins. By all counts, this is an excellent Pauillac that just needs a few years of cellaring to resolve some of its oak and tannin, but has the potential to be outstanding if given sufficient bottle age. It should last for two decades. Lynch Mousses has never been one of my favorite wines, but the Casteja family, who own nearby Batailley, have definitely upgraded quality at this estate. Inner quote mark (12/2013)
