Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, April 2020

    Although in sight of its closest neighbours, Ch Beychevelle and Branaire-Ducru, Ch Lanessan sits just outside the commune of St Julien and hence was excluded from that classification. The 2010 still has a youthful dark cherry colour, appealing gamey savoury aromas with hints of plum pudding and a touch of St Julien graphite. On the palate it is very full, with a generous volume. The tannins have softened to provide a tender round mouth feel. There is a lovely sweetness of black fruits which sit comfortably with a gentle freshness. Fully mature and ideal for drinking over the next 2-3 years.

    Score: 90-92

    The 2010 is opulent yet sculpted with its sweet, aromatic nose and succulent palate of bramble fruit and crunchy griotte cherries. Quite a charismatic wine, its tannins are polished though gently grippy on the finish.

    Score: 88-90+

    Good purity on the nose of this Lanessan 2010 with dark black cherries, blackcurrant and warm gravel. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, chewy with blackcurrant, briary and cedar towards the tannic, slightly hard finish. I think this will show better after bottling.

    Score: 87

    Dark ruby/plum colored, with evolved notes of cedar wood, earth and underbrush, this wine possesses the classic tobacco leaf and black currants of a mid-level Medoc. It is medium-bodied, has good ripeness and should age nicely for 15 or more years.Drink: 2013-2028

    Robert Parker, May 2011,
    Score: 87-89+

    Attractive notes of cedarwood, unsmoked cigar tobacco, red and black currants and loamy soil characterize this surprisingly soft, round, medium-bodied Lanessan. Although not the superstar value it can be in certain vintages, it is still a very good Medoc that should evolve nicely for 10-15 years given its tannic structure. Drink: 2011 - 2026

    James Suckling, April 2011,
    Score: 91-92

    Soft and silky, with lovely fruit and a long and caressing texture. Excellent core of fruit. Solid for the vintage. An excellent Lanessan.

    Score: 16

    Quite firm, smoky cassis fruit, fine middle depth and elegant structure. Drink 2014-20.

Producer

Château Lanesssan

One of the oldest estates in the Médoc dating from the 14th century, Lanessan was not classified in 1855 as they failed to submit a sample. Had they done so, some specialists believe that it would have been listed as a Fifth Growth. Not particularly great news for the château owners, but for its consumers on the other hand...

Region

Haut-Médoc

The Haut-Médoc is an appellation within the Médoc that stretches along the left bank of the Gironde from Blanquefort in the south to the north of Bordeaux. The region encompasses the more famous communes of St-Estèphe, Pauillac, St-Julien and Margaux. Following the 1855 classification many of its most famous estates were classified and scored as first, second, third, fourth or fifth growths. This was based on their social and commercial positions at the time. Most of these classed growths use the village appellation name, such as Pauillac. However five of these classed growths fell outside a village appellation so take the name Haut-Médoc. Many of the vineyards which are classified as Haut-Médoc may actually also be referred to as Cru Bourgeois wines. These wines have lower permitted yields and so offer great value for money.
