Chateau Lanessan Haut Médoc 2015
|France, Bordeaux, Haut Medoc
The 2015 Lanessan offers black plum, smoke and cedar on the nose. Clean and correct, it is maybe just lacking the flair I was hoping for. The palate is medium-bodied with blackberry and raspberry fruit. The tannins are a little firm at the moment but with decent length. Give this three or four years. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.
Medium garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Lanessan has a crushed cherries and warm plums-scented nose with an earthy undercurrent. It's medium-bodied with pleasant chew to the structure and an earthy finish.
