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.

Shows tightness and focus with blackcurrant and olive character on the nose and palate. Medium body, fine tannins and a flavorful finish.
92-93
points on 100
With a nice depth of color, you find smoke, grilled meat, spice, currant and tobacco notes on the nose before moving to all the round, rich, supple textured red fruits and ripe, chewy tannins. Give it 5-7 years in the bottle before pulling a cork and you will have a much better wine.

A remarkable expertise

Since the beginning of 2012, the estate has been implementing a new grape selection table, incorporating an ultramodern optical sorting system. During the year 2015, the property used the advice of Hubert de Boüard, the owner of the Château Angélus, alongside Paz Espejo and Eric Boissenot, a historical oenologist of this estate. He brought his knowledge and technical expertise to the vineyard.
