Overview of the Wine
The birth of Chateau Lanessan dates all the way back to 1793 when it was founded by Jean Delbos. Initially, the vineyard and estate was much smaller, as the property started out with 24 hectares. The impressive, classic chateau, with its Tudor, inspired influences was constructed in 1878. Eight generations later, Chateau Lanessan remains in the hands of the Bouteiller family, which are direct descendants of the founder. This is quite a feat for a Chateau located in the Medoc, as most vineyards have changed hands several times.

Aside from their obvious passion for wine, equestrian activities have always been a part of the makeup for Chateau Lanessan. They have numerous stables, which were constructed at the same time as the chateau in the shape of a horseshoe. As horses and carriages played an important part in the history of Lanessan, the estate also maintains a museum devoted to historical carriages.

Tasting Notes
Purple color. Intense and clean nose, dominated by black cherry notes, candied black fruit with floral nuances, rose and violet. A rich and lively attack on the palate with very silky tannins, sweet and savory. Lingering and fresh finish showing off powdered, candied, mineral nuances. Well-balanced wine, powerful and fleshy.

93 Points - James Suckling
Very beautiful, fine-tannined red with blackberry and blueberry character. Lovely chocolate and hazelnut undertones. Fine tannins. Fresh finish.

92 Points - Vinous
The 2020 Lanessan is impressive, to say the least. Dark, layered and mysterious, the 2020 packs serious punch, the blackberry jam, incense, scorched earth and leather all melding together. I especially admire the wine's depth and textural intensity. Beautifully done.
