The 2017 Les Haut de Lynch-Moussas was cropped at 51hl/ha. It has an agreeable bouquet, adequate red cherry and cranberry fruit, nicely defined and integrated with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite supple in the mouth with black tea and a touch of charcoal infusing the tender finish. Enjoy this over three to five years. ~86-88, Vinous Media
