The Lanessan vineyard has belonged to a succession of eight generations of the Bouteiller family since the 18th century. A young woman, Paz Espejo, took over the management of Château Lanessan from Hubert Bouteiller in August 2009. This change is a result of the Bouteiller family’s stated ambition to inject new life into this fine property.

Appellation:
AOC Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux

Country of Origin:
Bordeaux, France

Grape Varieties:
60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot

Vinification:
The fruit is harvested by machine at optimal ripeness and screened on a sorting table. The wine is made in coated concrete tanks with temperature regulation. The vatting period, rack, return and pumping over are adapted to the vintage and the characteristics of the fruit.

Ageing:
12 months in French oak: 1/3 new,1/3 one-year-old and 1/3 two-year-old barrels.

Tasting Notes:
Ripe black currant fruit with some cedar wood, licorice and wood spice are all present in this generously endowed, concentrated, low-acid Lanessan. The tannins are silky, and the overall impression is one of elegance, plumpness and beautiful intensity. This is a sleeper of the vintage and one that should only improve over the next several years and merit an outstanding rating. It should keep for up to two decades.
