The 2014 Lynch-Moussas has open-knit red fruit on the nose: red cherries, raspberry and wild strawberry all tinged with vanilla. The palate is medium-bodied with a little sharpness on the entry, very traditional in style with an austere pencil-lead finish that at least contains decent freshness. This is a fine Lynch-Moussas that needs age. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting. Drinking range: 2020 - 2035 Rating: 91 Neal Martin, (Mar 2018)

Silky and charming with sweetness and delicacy. Very gentle texture. Not for long ageing but delivers masses of short term pleasure. Drinking range: 2021 - 2030 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - (Feb 2018)

The Château Lynch-Moussas 2014 is a blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon and 21% Merlot picked 26 September and picked over the following three weeks, the same as the 2008 vintage according to Frédéric Castèja (compared to 10 days in 2013!) The wine is aged in 55% new French oak. It has a fragrant bouquet that shows a little more fruit intensity than the Batailley at this stage, perhaps more harmony. The palate is medium-bodied with gently grippy tannins and a pure core of cedar-infused fruit. With impressive density and focus on the finish, this is a top-notch Lynch Moussas and perhaps the first year where it may surpass the Castèja family’s Batailley. Excellent.
