1955 Château Lanessan

Community Tasting Note


89 Points

Friday, January 13, 2012 - Chateau Lanessan Vertical (55,95,96,00,01,03,05,08): What an honor to be drinking this. It may not be outstanding, but it is really cool. Ruby with some purple, looking 40 years younger than it is. Great Bordeaux nose of sandalwood, slight funk, and a bit of cassis. Not quite as good on the palate, a bit thin. Still, it has a lot to offer. Not quite as complex as I might have hoped, but a fine wine. This was slowoxed for five hours before consuming.
