2017 Château Lynch-Moussas, Cru Classé Pauillac

Nice power and depth to the dark fruit, with a touch of cassis sweetness. There's good balance and freshness and energy carrying it along. A very Pauillac and saline finish.

TASTING NOTES

This is precise and linear with a very pretty center palate of tannins and a bright finish. Fresh acidity. Some hazelnuts just at the end, but it’s not from the wood. Elegant and refined.
