Château Lanessan 2000 & 2001

87 points

Haut-Medoc, Bordeaux, France. 13%

Chateau Lanessan produces good honest claret. I suspect that one day they’ll do considerably better than this as it is a well situated vineyard.

2000 is the better vintage but the bottle had a leaking cork. There wasn’t detectable oxidation (yet) but I doubt this was the best of bottles. A bit muddy, without flair, or great intensity, but nicely solid.

2001 was fresher and surprisingly seemed of similar ripeness levels. A good effort.
