1998 Chateau Lanessan Delbos-Bouteiller Haut-Medoc

Wine Description

(From 1999 Vintage) Intense ruby color, with an elegant nose and fruity, floral aromas. On the palate, the structure is complex and dense, melting away harmoniously to a good, long finish. When they are older, the wines take on a terracotta tint and the nose becomes increasingly complex, with the appearance of plummy, then undergrowth aromas. The flavors are smooth, warm and perfectly harmonious, ending with silky tannins.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 1996 Vintage) 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.
