Professional Wine Reviews
Wine Advocate

"Generally a St.-Julien/Pauillac-like offering, the 2009 Lanessan seems more explosive and concentrated than prior vintages. I’m not sure it is the finest I have ever tasted, but it boasts a dense purple color as well as copious creme de cassis, cedar wood, underbrush, and spice notes. Beautiful opulence, silky tannins, and a long finish suggest this sleeper of the vintage will drink well for 2-3 decades. (Tasted once.)"

Wine Spectator

"Aromas of sandalwood and berries. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins and a medium finish. A little one-dimensional, but should come out very well." 86-89 points
Wine Review
We have not carried this wine in a few vintages, but the 2009 was consistently great each time we tasted it during our trip. The nose was a bit reticent at first but after a few minutes, wonderful aromas of dark red and black fruits became prominent. On the palate there is a real sense of terroir, with a bit of earth to complement the concentrated fruit flavors and velvety tannins. There is a core of acidity that runs all the way through to the finish that keeps the wine refreshing through its power. Very well balanced.
