The history of Château Lanessan is linked to the Bouteiller family, which has owned it since the 18th century. Eight generations have therefore managed Château Lanessan.
The terroir of Château Lanessan covers 45 hectares of vineyards among which 32 ha are aged between 20 and 30 years, on deep Garonne gravel. The vines are 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. To start with, the mechanical harvesting of the grapes is done at optimum maturity. Then the selection is done through a vibrating table and an optical sorting machine. Last, the fermentation is in coated concrete tanks, with temperature control. Eventually the aging is 12 months in French oak barrels with 1/3 new barrels, 1/3 barrels a year and 1/3 barrels two years. The property also has an oeno-tourism offer with the opening of a cottage in 2017 “in pleasant colors, a simple style, with a spirit of nature and chic countryside.” Check it out on their website: http://www.lanessan.com/hebergement-au-chateau-lanessan/
At the tasting, Château Lanessan offers an intense violet color with blush tints. The aromatic palette is intense and complex, with aromas of candied black fruits, accompanied by beautiful peppery and liquorice notes that bring freshness and elegance.
