Wow this was hands down the best bottle of wine I have ever had from this producer. It had a lot of rich red fruit (zero tannins) mixed with cedar and some earth. For a wine that is 16 years old, it tasted like it has another 5 to 7 years of drinkability. Really nice bottle of wine.

Tasted blind. Unclear brown-red color. Very dense and opaque. Impossible to see through. It smells fruity. Quite good. Dates and vanilla. Oaky and with sour fruit paired with coffee notes in the end. It tastes fruity and light. Fine and pure. Not much tannins. Quite powerful and lots of blackcurrant.

2010 Château Lanessan

Not a pop and pour. Took breathing and decanting to get it to open up. Nice Bordeaux, I guess this is what you get for a $25 Bordeaux these days; I'm old enough to remember when that got you a grand cru or at least a second growth... This has to be mostly Merlot from the taste, it was more medium-bodied, yet varietally correct and pleasant. Some tannins left. Nothing special. Guess I expect a tad more for $25...especially from the 2010 vintage.
Do not see any long term aging potential on this, the tannins will outlast the fruit.

Cork was in perfect condition, so perfect infact that I expected it to have been recorked (I don't know if it has been). The nose was well developed with lots of tertiary scents, raw meat, damped cellar, pencil shavings and new car interior. The fruit was a mix between sour cherry and raspberry candy. On the palate the age was confirmed with a concentrated leather flavor. Tannins still had a bit of grip but mainly the texture was just silky and elegant. The finish was long but thin. I think the wine probably is at its peek soon. It will most likely last a couple of more years, or even improve, but it is not in it for the long run as it missing some tannins, structure and acidity to back it up.

Young, just entering drinking window or perhaps even a bit early- has the structure to go for some time, so no need to open yet unless you have a case and want to put a toe in the 2005 vintage which We have barely done. PNP which is not the way. Better and better over four hours. Tannins well integrated, notes ? of leather, tobacco, cedar, look forward to next year. Good QPR. Even tho scored same as from 375, and that was a year ago, I come away from this liking it better than I remember

magnum, decant.
Saturated garnet, medium- full bodied, high quality cabernet fruit with currant and tobacco and graphite. Really singing.
This is traditionally made and faithful to the terroir. This producer represents the kind of wine that got me interested in Bordeaux. It's a testament to what kind of owners they are, where they completely ignored the fruit bomb trend of the past two decades and did their own thing.
Evolved into something more as the night went on, taking on secondary notes of spice and slight garrigue- which tells me it still has a lot of stuffing to go another 10 years.
90-92

Deep red with some noticeable bricking. Nose of red fruits, earth and lilacs.

The earthy flavors predominate and the fruit is very much in the background. Tannins are almost completely resolved with good acid. Lacks a bit of complexity, finish is a bit short. I'm underwhelmed.

Fully mature and I don't see this improving. Drink.

Pop'n'pour. Moden lukt av solbær, cedertre og litt kaffetoner. Solbærduften forsvinner kjapt og går over i kjeller, våt jord og tørket frukt. Smak av mørke bær, vått høstløv, rosin, tobakk og moccabønner samt hint av vanilje. God men moden frukt, middels syre og tannin. God struktur. Bør nok luftes en time, da det siste glasset var best.

From mag, popped and poured. This just seemed particularly good tonight. Red fruits dominated nose and palate. Medium weight, very food friendly. Drinking well now, but with years to go. Great QPR.

Le Château Lanessan, propriété de 100 hecares, es situé sur la commune de Cussac-Fort-Médoc, au sud de Saint-Julien Beychevelle. Son encépagement est traditionnel: une large majorité de Cabernet Sauvignon et de Cabernet Franc complétée par le Merlot et le Petit Verdot. Chaque cépage apporte des saveurs et des senteurs qui sont valorisées par les autres. La tradition et les techniques modernes se conjuguent pour obtenir un vin qui se bonifiera en vieillissant malgré un léger dépôt qui signe le respect que nous avons pour lui. Pour que ses qualités soient mises en valeur, il est souhaitable de décanter ce vin et de le servir a 17/18 C notamment sur des plats de viandes rouges ou du gibier.

Always an outstanding value for the price, and this is no exception; This has an enticing core of plum, tobacco, earth and mint, with fairly soft tannins leading into the finish; Great to drink right now, although not sure it will improve much with additional age

Black currant, fresh tobacco, violets, sweet oak, beetroot and toast on the nose. A little austere without food but with lamb this begins to shine; it's fresh with fine but gritty tannins and black currant as the dominant fruit. Great qpr from an excellent vintage. With time a liquorice note is added and a touch of farmyard. It also broadens on the palate

Initially, strict, not the balanced ripeness that I bought this for after a recent tasting. Double decanted and left for two hours. Put on weight, deep colour, ripe nose and palette, becoming soft. Lovely balance, cassis, cedar, savoury. Claret at this level often leaves me wondering why but I'm looking forward to the next bottle of this. Drink now or cellar for years.

Vinen er mørk rødbrun med langsomme legger. Nese med sopp, plomme og for øvrig mørk frukt. Munn med noe frukt og en del kald kaffegrut. Der er noe godt integrerte tanniner og en lang ettersmak som er preget av kaffe. Utvikler seg lite med luft, så jeg mener at dette er; drikk nå!

A really satisfying Bordeaux. This isn't a big wine or a showcase of complexity - it's just really classic, old school Bordeaux that's very easy to drink, all cedar, tobacco, and mature earthy and graphite notes framing red and dark berried fruit. There's still some grainy tannin beneath but it quickly eases up with some time in the decanter, and it's wonderful to follow over a few hours.

Dark ruby red colour, clear and very weighty. A strong, thick fruit nose. Alcoholic 'Ribena'! A hefty blackcurrant aroma, a an equally potent alcoholic bouquet! Dry mouthfeel. A huge, complex taste, dry tannin, a big blackcurrant fruitiness, which is followed by a strong peppery spice. The finish is long.
