Arnaud Durand, technical director since 2003, learnt under Denis Dubourdieu and they now work with Axel Marchal as consultant. This is really a success this year, not quite as concentrated as some but hugely enjoyable and drinkable. It has good Pauillac character and should be relatively good value. It's not the most broad-shouldered or intense, but charming and good quality. A well-handled, impactful and Pauillac signature with tarry, grilled notes that have suggestions of oak, but they have taken it down a peg from the last few years. There's a bit more clay in the soil here that gives a roundness in the mouth compared to Batailley. 60% new oak, A healthy 51hl/ha yield, harvested 19-16 September. A fairly high 30% press wine in the blend. Wait six to eight years before drinking.

James Suckling   92-93

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.

The 2017 Lynch Moussas, composed of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon and 22% Merlot, is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with a very pretty nose of red roses and chocolate box over a core of crushed blackcurrants, blackberries and wild blueberries with touches of garrigue and wood smoke. The palate is medium-bodied with a firm, grainy backbone and oodles of freshness, finishing with great length and a mineral character coming through.
