Earthy, tobacco driven, dark red fruits with a rustic type of charm, although the wine seems cleaner, fresher and a bit softer than in previous vintages. Much of that credit for the improvement in the wine belongs to bringing in Hubert de Bouard as their consultant starting with the 2015 vintage. 88 - 90 Pts

When to Drink Chateau Lanessan, Anticipated Maturity, Decanting Time

Chateau Lanessan needs some time before it can be enjoyed. Young vintages can be decanted for an average of 90 minutes to 2 hours. This allows the wine to soften and open its perfume. Older vintages might need very little decanting, just enough to remove the sediment.

Chateau Lanessan is usually better with at least 7-8 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau Lanessan offers its best drinking and should reach peak maturity between 7-20 years of age after the vintage.

Serving and Decanting Chateau Lanessan with Wine, Food, Pairing Tips

Chateau Lanessan is best served at 15.5 degrees Celsius, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The cool, almost cellar temperature gives the wine more freshness and lift. The wine of Chateau Lanessan is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, and grilled dishes.

Chateau Lanessan is a perfect match with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms, and pasta as well as cheese.
