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.

Cropped four days later than Batailley, finishing on 21st October, the Lynch Moussas is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot cropped at 39hl/ha, this has quite a generous nose with blackberry, crushed stone, just a hint of hot roof tiles developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy tannins on the entry, good acidity, more backbone than the 2009 was showing last year with some lovely ripe Cabernet Sauvignon. There is an almost citrus-like freshness on the finish with very good length. Certainly the best Lynch Moussas in a very long time. Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

This is solid for this estate with currant and chocolate character, full body and a velvety textured finish. Best ever from here? 76 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 24 percent Merlot. jamessuckling.com

Tasted 7 Apr: Very dark, concentrated ruby. Very fresh and minerally/pencil shavings on the nose. Soooo Cabernet! Nice succulent fresh Pauillac without enormous ambition but well balanced and should provide lovely medium-term drinking. More transparent than most. Dry finish. Tasted 17 Feb: 1.5km from sister property Ch Batailley. Not finished when I tasted it so I have given precedence to my impressions when I tasted it blind in early April . Very dark purple. Light green-peppery note. Sweet start and lacks the sheer concentration of some 2010s but pretty snazzy. Very sweet and flattering. jancisrobinson.com

Good, slightly briary-spicy cassis fruit, good clarity and depth and very attractive wine from this château in continuous improvement. Drink 2016-26. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

This is a ripe balanced elegant wine with a vibrant fruit profile, but lacking in depth. The tannins are supple and the finish is moderate. There is a wonderful lightness in this wine making it approachable even in its youth. asianpalate.com
