Still quite fresh, purple appearance. Quite jammy (raspberry jam) nose, pronounced with some chocolate and sweet spice notes. Good balanced palate, dark fruits on the attack and then the secondary notes take over in the finish with cedar and cigar box. It is light in the mid-palate and finish but it is drinking excellently. The kind of wine you could drink bottles and bottles of. Superb value although I do suspect this is an excellent bottle. Lanessan - when good - is extraordinary value.
Popped and poured. Surprising amount of freshness comes out at first. It slowly fades into more classic Medoc notes of soil and pepper, chewy tannins, cassis, and plum skin. A touch of orange peel lingers with saddle leather and dark chocolate. Still has plenty of life and is a delicious bottle of wine for the price.
Medium/deep garnet core, pale garnet rim. Nose is quite developed and shows blackcurrant fruit, flashes of strawberry, cedar, notes of earth and a slight underlying bitterness. Palate is medium bodied, a touch austere with dark fruit, earth, iron, not overly intense with balanced acidity and slightly dusty tannins on the medium/good length finish. Decent, classic claret, drinking now and should be fine for the next 5 years or so.
Brick red and pale rim but very clear. Powerful heady nose of red fruit. dry with medium dry tannins. sweet taste, plums, red fruit, very fruity and very long. lovely depth - fantastic with entrecote and salad
