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.
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)
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)
Lifted aromatic nose. Polished tannins with some inner glow. Dry end. Very solid performance. *Good Value* 16+/20 points. (JR)
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)
