"this is an excellent Lanessan" - Decanter Purple colour. Intense and clean nose, dominated by black cherry notes, candied black fruit with floral nuances, rose and violet. A rich and lively attack on the palate with very silky tannins, sweet and savoury. Lingering and fresh finish showing off powdered, candied, mineral nuances. Well-balanced wine, powerfull and fleshy. 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot

Decanter

Inky medium to full intensity purple colour, this is an excellent Lanessan, stuffed full of Haut-Médoc character. Really does a good job of balancing fruit tannins and acidities, without straying too far into any one territory. Cassis and bilberry are the dominant fruits, slightly rustic in the right way, and good lift through the finish. Another impressive vintage from winemaker Paz Espejo.

Bright and vivid with blackcurrants, dried flowers and hints of spice to the energetic fruit. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, racy tannins and a long finish. Very well done.
