1996 Chateau Lanessan Haut-Medoc

Wine Description

(From 2006 Vintage) Restrained yet flamboyant, polished, dark fruits. Integrated ripe fruit, rounded tannins and supporting oak lifted by acidity.

Winemaker's Notes

Lanessan is located in Cussac just south of Saint-Julien and opposite the big vineyard of Chateau Gruaud-Larose. The 1996 is an impressive effort, deep ruby with plenty of blackcurrant, spice box and cedar, quite savoury and long in the mouth. Great value.
