Château Lanessan

An impressive château situated close to the village of Saint-Julien, Lanessan has a history going back to the early 14th century.

In 1793 it passed to the Delbos family and their descendants, the Bouteiller family, still own it today. The estate is 260 hectares with 40 given over to vines in a fairly classic mix of Cabernet, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Winemaking is traditional with a reasonably high proportion of new barrels used each year. The wine is solid, well made and can offer very good value for money. Results have been especially good since winemaker Paz Espejo has been in charge.

Vintage guide

Early reports suggest the 2022 vintage looks very promising indeed. The 2021 vintage has made wines that are medium bodied with good freshness, in a similar style to 2017. The 2020 vintage yielded wines that are aromatic and concentrated, quite big in structure with freshness and balance. The wines of 2019 are very concentrated, fresh, ripe and plentiful, all in all a very well-regarded vintage. 2018 was a very good vintage in the end but mildew, hail, and a heatwave all served to reduce yields. The harvest across the region took place in near ideal conditions. 2017 is good in terms of quality but short on quantity, following frosts in the Spring that decimated certain properties. 2016 is a worthy successor to 2015, on a par qualitatively and looking very promising across all wine types. A hot summer but with cool nights has produced wines with fruit and freshness. 2015 is exceptionally good across the region for reds, especially the Right Bank, Pessac-Léognan, dry whites (better for Sauvignon than Sémillon) and sweeties: it is certainly the best vintage since 2010. 2014 is a very good Cabernet vintage, particularly in the Médoc where the wines are fresh with fine tannins. Overall, ripeness levels are good and so are quantities. The 2013 and 2012 vintages were not particularly easy for the Bordelais, requiring dedication in the vineyard and modern techniques in the winery. Plenty of attractive short- and medium-term wines have been made, but yields are low.
