A high proportion of cabernet sauvignon (83%) in the 2016 blend, along with 17% merlot. Reveals hints of cedar on the nose, with creamy texture and nicely balanced, savoury dark fruit character on the palate. Good ageing potential.

The 2016 Lynch-Moussas has a clean, pure bouquet of slightly meaty black fruit, quite harmonious. The palate is well balanced, with mint-infused black fruit, tobacco and sage. I like the density of this Pauillac, which is focused and elegant yet classic on the finish. I suspect it will improve in bottle. Drink 2022-2045. (Neil Martin - critic)

The 2016 Château Lynch-Moussas is a fine Pauillac and has a pretty, classic, elegant style that’s very much in the character of the vintage. Ruby-colored, with notes of tobacco, leafy herbs, and graphite, it has fine tannins and, again, an undeniable elegance and classic style. Drink it over the coming 15-20 years. Drink 2019-2039.
