The Lanessan vineyard has belonged to a succession of eight generations of the Bouteiller family since the 18th century. A young woman, Paz Espejo, took over the management of Château Lanessan from Hubert Bouteiller in August 2009. This change is a result of the Bouteiller family’s stated ambition to inject new life into this fine property.
Dark, quite dense - very traditional Bordeaux style, the nose is immediately appealing with flecks of cassis, plum and cedar. The oak is integrated and sweet.
Great with robust game or red meats, smelly cheese or spicy vegetarian dishes.
