1955 Château Lanessan

Community Tasting Note


Wednesday, December 30, 2009 - Second time with this wine for me from Linden's cellar. This bottle was even younger and more serious than the previous which was a fully resolved and wonderfully expressive mass of red fruits. This was almost dark to the rim and full of black fruits and truffles. Was a truly classic claret in the good sense and a great match for the 70s BVs served alongside it. It didn't quite have the power they had or the grandeur of the 59 ausone but still a great claret.
