Tasting Notes and Scores

90-92

Neal Martin

The 2020 Lanessan presents a very perfumed nose of dark cherries, cassis, cedar and background tobacco aromas, turning quite minty with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, a crisp line of acidity, plenty of tightly wound black fruit and a saline finish. This is a classy Lanessan, quite complex and intense yet refined. -vinous.com

James Suckling

Very beautiful, fine-tannined red with blackberry and blueberry character. Lovely chocolate and hazelnut undertones. Fine tannins. Fresh finish.

15.5

Jancis Robinson

Undated cask sample. 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. Machine-harvested and aged in concrete.
Purple. Nicely balanced Médoc fruit in a dry wine with marked tannin. Straightforward club claret for a typical old-fashioned gentleman's club – or would the gentlemen find it too ripe?

Antonio Galloni

The 2020 Lanessan is impressive, to say the least. Dark, layered and mysterious, the 2020 packs serious punch, the blackberry jam, incense, scorched earth and leather all melding together. I especially admire the wine's depth and textural intensity. Beautifully done.

Jeff Leve

Toasty oak, dark red and black fruit, camphor and espresso come through on the nose. On the palate the wine is round, supple and structured. You find loads of sweet, ripe, fleshy fruits with a trace of cocoa in the finish. This should age quite nicely. 90-92

Tasted by Jane Anson(at Primeur week tastings in Bordeaux, 01 May 2021)

Intense raspberry fruits, chocolate shavings, tobacco leaf and liquorice. Successful overall with rippling muscular tannins and good acidity. Owned by Domaine Bouteiller, this vintage was the last year with Paz Espejo, she has left after 10 years at the helm, her successor had not been announced at time of tasting (although she was château director as well as technical director, and in this Pierre Delage has taken over the role). September 22 to October 7 for the harvest. Eric Boissenot consultant.
