The Bordeaux blend has been copied with considerable success in many other wine regions, the ultimate compliment. The Left Bank of the Gironde River boasts the great Chateaux of the Medoc and Graves, whilst on the Right Bank, Saint Emilion (arguably the most beautiful commune) and Pomerol. Bordeaux is synonymous with the finest quality, predominantly in red wines though great dry whites are made in the Pessac Leognan, and most wine lovers will strive to taste the sweet white wines of Chateau Yquem and its neighbouring Chateau in Sauternes and Barsac.
This second wine of the ever improving Chateau Lynch Moussas, offers smoky tabacco aromas a generously textured palate, and a really impressive length. This is classified as Haut Medoc but the stylistic Pauillac vineyard characteristics are evident.
Unlike its big brother in Pauillac, the second wine of Chateau Lynch Moussas is produced from vineyards in Haut-Medoc. Fresh red and black fruit aromas fill the glass with a touch of spice. Everyday claret!

There is again elevated acidity but its in proportion. The tannins are cautious. Great promise here. A mini …
Chateau Lagrange Pomerol is known for creating fruity wines which can be enjoyed nicely in their youth. They do however have some good concentration and tannic structure which offers the opportunity for some improvement when placed in a good cellar! This 96 will have fully resolved tannins and plenty of aromatic character.
