Decanter 92/100

A dark, knitted nose. Red and black cherries, smooth and well textured with fine tannins that just give support. I like the blue fruit touch on the palate, this has a cool feel aided by bitter dark chocolate elements adding the nuance but all presented with gusto. This is serious and powerful for sure with persistence and long length. It's like a greyhound straight out the gates, fast and decisive. Good balance and well built with power and concentration. A great effort and a real success for getting the most out the vintage. Tasted twice. Ageing 60% new oak.

James Suckling 92-93

Finely textured with firm, fine tannins that coat a core of dark berries, cocoa and some tobacco. Medium body with a broad mid-palate. Expansive finish. 72% cabernet sauvignon and 28% merlot.

Wine Advocate 91/100

The 2021 Lynch-Moussas is a solid effort, exhibiting aromas of cassis, loamy soil and pencil shavings. Medium to full-bodied, lively and charming, with impressive depth for the vintage and by the standards of this 62-hectare Pauillac estate, the blend is dominated by 72% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Vinous 92/100

The 2021 Lynch-Moussas has a lovely bouquet with blackberry, raspberry and cedar scents, a touch of wild mint emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with quite "thick" tannins that lend this Pauillac surprising weight in context of the vintage. Quite rounded on the finish with a touch of pain grillé on the aftertaste.
