Tasted Friday, January 13, 2012 by Loren Sonkin with 537 views
Last night, my friend and Bber Dick L. hosted a tasting from his cellar of Chateau Lanessan. Back in the day, the 1955 was his epiphany wine. This is a relatively inexpensive haut medoc wine that really needs some time to strut its stuff. I thought Dick did a great job in prepping the wines (decanting them all except slowox for the 55). (Plus it kept the riff-raff, those who hate decanting ;-), away from the tasting). All the wines showed well. This is an estate that provides great QPR in a place, Bordeaux, that many say is way over priced.
The wines were enjoyed over 3 hours. Breads and cheeses were served.
A couple of blind Rieslings to start the evening.
And some Port to conclude:
Thanks for inviting me Dick!
