    This striking château sits on the horizon as you enter St Julien and always makes a very rewarding style of wine. This has volume and body, with stacks of aromatic dark berry fruit flavours. Sweet, long and luscious on the finish.

    The 2015 Lanessan offers black plum, smoke and cedar on the nose. Clean and correct, it is maybe just lacking the flair I was hoping for. The palate is medium-bodied with blackberry and raspberry fruit. The tannins are a little firm at the moment but with decent length. Give this three or four years. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

    The 2015 Lanessan has quite a punchy, fruit-driven bouquet with well-integrated oak, a Lanessan with more sense of purpose than I have found in recent vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with fine blackberry and raspberry fruit, fine tannin, leading to a smooth and harmonious finish, which lingers nicely in the mouth. You know, this is the best Lanessan for a long time, perchance because Mon. De Bouard is consulting?

    The 2015 Lanessan is an attractive, mid-weight wine that will drink well upon release. Dark red cherry, plum and sweet floral notes add to the wine's open-knit personality and considerable appeal. Tasted two times.

    Blackberry and black licorice aromas and flavors. Full body, chewy tannins and bright acidity. Impressive concentration for the vintage. 60% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot, 4% petit verdot and 1% cabernet franc.

    Floral nose and good firmness and depth. This wine is always slow to start and will develop well.

    Light crimson. Not very expressive on the nose. Very brisk indeed. Glossy fruit. Could be quite a charmer in the short term. GV? Drink 2019-2026

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.
