This wine is out of stock

£ 10.90 tax incl.


A round and fruity Haut-Médoc, very well balanced with silky tannins. The second wine of Château Lanessan is made at the domain with the same know-how as for the first wine. Lanessan is well known for the constant quality of its affordable  wines, treating vines and wine with the greatest care. Calèches de Lanessan has typical Haut-Médoc aromas of red and black fruit with a beautiful structure, thanks to a delicate mix of different grapes - Mostly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, but also Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. A great bottle which is easy to drink and shows complexity at the same time. All ready to drink now, although can also be kept for a few years.

A word about the domain
The Lanessan vineyard has been within the Bouteiller Family since the 18th century and is now managed by a woman, Paz Espejo, who has contributed to the renewal of the Chateau in the last decade. It is definitely one of the rising stars of the Haut-Médoc appellation and is producing very harmonious wines where the fine tannins are perfectly integrated in the body of the wine.
