2010 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc (3L) (Pre-Arrival)
Soft and silky, with lovely fruit and a long and caressing texture. Excellent core of fruit. Solid for the vintage. An excellent Lanessan.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Attractive notes of cedarwood, unsmoked cigar tobacco, red and black currants and loamy soil characterize this surprisingly soft, round, medium-bodied Lanessan. Although not the superstar value it can be in certain vintages, it is still a very good Medoc that should evolve nicely for 10-15 years given its tannic structure.
*+V An elegant wine from good terroir. Full-flavored, sweet, lush and sexy. A great value. TB: Juicy, ripe aromas of red cherries and spice. Focused and balanced with hints of minerals and slate. AP: Impressive balance, pretty bright red fruits and lots of complexity. A super sleeper.
