58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot
Impressive ripe blackberry and darker plum fruits with notes of earth and warm stone. The palate has a supple, even paced and fresh fruited heart of red cherry and plum fruits. Smooth tannins flow long. Try from 2021. 93 Points. James Suckling (Feb 2018).
The 2015 Lanessan has quite a punchy, fruit-driven bouquet with well-integrated oak, a Lanessan with more sense of purpose than I have found in recent vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with fine blackberry and raspberry fruit, fine tannin, leading to a smooth and harmonious finish, which lingers nicely in the mouth. You know, this is the best Lanessan for a long time, perchance because Mon. De Bouard is consulting? 90-92 Points. Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate (April 2016).
