Red – Savory and Classic
Wines & Spirits:
The 2016 Lanessan is an attractive wine. A host of savory, earth-driven Cabernet Sauvignon overtones give the wine good aromatic nuance and complexity to play off the plump, generous, dark-fleshed fruit. Pliant and deep, the 2016 should drink well with minimal cellaring, especially if the tannins soften a bit.
Vinous Antonio Galloni:
The 2016 Lanessan has come together nicely during aging. Tobacco, menthol, dried cherry, licorice and subtle earthy notes flesh out in this supple, expressive Haut-Médoc. The tannins could use a bit of time to soften, but the 2016 has a lot to offer. I won’t be at all surprised if the 2016 blossoms into an even more complete wine. (AG) (1/2019)

Currant, lead pencil and fresh rose-petal aromas follow through to a full body, round and nicely chewy tannins and a long finish. Balanced and polished. Drink in 2022. (2/2019) A structured young red with currant and berry character. Medium body, velvety tannins and a savory finish.
The 2016 Lanessan has a perfumed, quite floral bouquet with graphite tinged black fruitùfine delineation with impressive focus, even if it is not the most complex Haut-Medoc that I encountered in this vintage out of barrel. The palate is medium-bodied with smooth tannin, well-judged acidity, plenty of black fruit with a harmonous, engaging and slightly tarry finish. This is a great Lanessan that should give 20 years of pleasure. This comes highly recommended and I expect it will land at the top of my banded score once in bottle. (28th Apr 2017)
This is an ambitious take on 2016, pushing the vintage but successfully so, going for a cerebral 2010 feel rather than the generosity of 2009. Classic liquorice and slate, tight cassis fruits and an extremely well paced delivery of fresh tight tannins lead into a gorgeous, lifted juicy fruit finish. From a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. I like this a lot. (JA) (4/2017) Barrel Sample
Medium garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Lanessan offers cassis and plums on the nose with a core of cedar, earth and herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate is firm, grainy and lively with good expression. (LPB) (11/2018)
Lifted aromatic nose. Polished tannins with some inner glow. Dry end. Very solid performance. *Good Value* 16+/20 points. (JR) (4/2017)
