  • Goedhuis, April 2019, Score: 89-91

    Sitting on the very edge of St Julien, Ch Lanessan is one of the most consistent wines in its category. With deep aromas of blackcurrants, this balances a good richness of fruit and an appealing Cabernet drive. This has good length, rounded tannins, and is lightly fresh on the finish.

  • Wine Advocate, April 2019, Score: 89-91+

    The 2018 Lanessan is deep garnet-purple colored with black cherries, cassis, mulberries and baked plums on the nose with herbs, earth and tea hints. Medium to full-bodied, it is a little chewy and herbal with the oak poking through on the finish.

  • James Suckling, April 2019, Score: 92-93

    Shows tightness and focus with blackcurrant and olive character on the nose and palate. Medium body, fine tannins and a flavorful finish.

  • Decanter, April 2019, Score: 92

    I have enjoyed Lanessan over the last few years, and there's a lot to take note of here. It's a pretty serious take on the vintage with a strong architecture of cassis fruits, pencil lead and slate, more 2016 than 2015 in style. It should age well. Good value. Harvested 24 September to 16 October. Ageing is in 33% new oak. Drinking Window 2024 - 2038

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2019, Score: 16.5

    A nice nose and good balance make this one of the more harmonious wines in the Haut-Médoc in this vintage. Not too heavy or forced this is a nice wine with a charming feel about it.

Producer

Château Lanessan

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.
