Chateau lanessan Haut-Medoc 2008 Cabernet Merlot blend
Lanessan was one of the great outcomes of the 2008 vintage although it has taken a decade for it to blossom into claret perfection. This is old school Bordeaux that needed time to show itself but now that the tannins have softened and the mature aromatics have emerged it is a sensationally satisfying wine of pure elegance and style. There is no better accompaniment to lamb and beef than a glass of mature Medoc and this one ticks every box emphatically. Drink now to 2030.
