This is a large estate of nearly 150 acres owned by Philippe Casteja. He has been making improvements, and the 2009 is certainly one of the better wines I have tasted from this estate. A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, the creme de cassis of Pauillac is well-displayed in this medium-bodied, elegant, richly fruity wine. It should drink nicely for 15 or more years. Wine Advocate.February, 2012

Tasted at Château Batailley and the UGC. A blend of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon and 28% Merlot, cropped at 39hl/ha, this has a very tight bouquet with notes of blackberry, briary, a touch of undergrowth and with aeration, a hint of black plum. Good definition. The palate is medium-bodied, very harmonious and pure with an almost Margaux-like tannins. Very focused with blackberry, boysenberry, a touch of sandalwood, gentle and elegant towards the finish. This is the best Lynch Moussas...ever? Probably. Tasted March 2010.

Attractive nose of blueberries, blackberries and currants follow through to full body, with super silky tannins. Fresh herbs and spices. Very well done from here. Best in 2017. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

A balanced wine, with pretty currant and hints of ripe citrus fruit. Medium- to full-bodied, with a balance of tannins and a medium finish. 28 percent Merlot and 62 percent Cabernet Sauvignon

Mid crimson. Attractive, mineral, very classic Pauillac nose with lots of sweetness too. Very pleasing for the short term even if not one of the greats. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

Dense red, good, quite forward autumnal blackcurrant fruit, attractively elegant, supple and charming. Drink 2013-18.
