Description
Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
32 hectares (79 acres) of 30-year-old vines growing in deep Garonne gravel beds.
Mechanically harvested when the fruit is optimally ripe. It is sorted with optical screening equipment. Fermented in coated concrete tanks equipped with temperature control. The winemaking techniques, pumping over, rack and return are used according to the needs of the vintage and the fruit.

Tasting notes
"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 licorice 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." -91 Points Decanter

Estate
The birth of Chateau Lanessan dates all the way back to 1793, eight generations later, Chateau Lanessan remains in the hands of the Bouteiller family, which are direct descendants of the founder. This is quite a feat for a Chateau located in the Medoc, as most vineyards have changed hands several times. Chateau Lanessan is planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Out of its 80 hectares, 45 hectares are cultivated with vines. The vineyard is close to the St. Julien appellation.
