K&L Notes

In February 1998, Robert Parker wrote: "Lynch-Moussas is clearly on the comeback trail, as evidenced by the 1995 and 1996 efforts, which are two of the finest wines I have tasted from this Pauillac estate." Just tasted in 2015, the wine sings. Old school, Bordeaux-pure cassis and red fruits. Wonderful balance and length. Superb value. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Staff Member)

    This 1996 is soft and sweet, with attractive notes of black olives, cherry, plums, wet stones and thyme, framed by an earthy notes with a touch of "animal" It is a beautiful wine, and just about ready to be enjoyed now.

    The 1996 vintage brought on cool weather, but made for perfect conditions for ageable wines. The Lynch Moussas perfectly exemplifies the 1996 vintage. While it is certainly in its prime, drinking perfectly right now, it has aged gracefully in its 19 years and has the possibility to continue aging. Aromas of sweet cherry, leather and cola permeate the glass while the palate shows notes of smoke, coffee, olive and graphite. With an elegant polished structure and beautiful length, this bottle is a must-have for the traditional Bordeaux lover.
