En Primeur Chateau Lanessan 2017 is not yet released for sale. Please email email@example.com and ask to be added to our En Primeur email list.
Lanessan is a benchmark for Haut-Médoc, famed as one of the best estates to be missed out of the 1855 Classification. Lanessan later declared itself to be a ‘Grand Cru Hors Classé’…a classless wine (in the best sense). It’s also famously long-lived often needing a few more years in the cellar than comparable wines. Winemaker Paz Espejo has been in charge since 2009, the 45 hectares of vineyards adjoin AOC Saint-Julien, with an average vine age of 40 years.
“A tight and vibrant Haut-Medoc with plenty of acidity, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Shows a good backbone. 89-90 pts.” James Suckling
