Medium intense nose with aromas of brett, barnyard, hay, ceder, dirt, burned wood, wet leaves and a little tobacco. Very much what to expect from a mature Bordeaux.
Medium acidity, quite dry with medium tannins. Medium body, medium intensity and a rather short finish. Gets better after an hour or two, with a bit more fruit coming forward and the tannins getting a bit rounder.
I love the nose, very classic with decent depth and complexity. Falls a bit short, literally, on the palate. Probably better 3-4 years ago and has now lost most of its stuffing.

(Chateau Lanessan (Haut-Médoc)) A nice colour here, showing some classic claretty maturity but there is still plenty of life in it yet I think. The nose has a touch of perfume but still a rather dense and solid character, A supple style on the palate, the tannins well resolved, the texture of the wine around those structural elements that persist a rather soft and gentle one, although there is still a little bite and grip to this in the background. Attractive.
