Les Calèches de Lanessan

£20.00

A more modern, ripely fruited Haut-Médoc

Planted on deep Garonne gravel beds twenty years ago, the thirteen hectares of vineyards that produce this wine lie between two Cru Classé Saint-Julien estates. When the grapes reach optimum ripeness they are mechanically harvested (for speed) and meticulously sorted, before fermentation in temperature controlled, coated concrete tanks. Winemaker Paz Espejo then employs traditional techniques – pumping over, rack and return – according to the needs of the vintage and of the fruit to make Les Calèches, Château Lanessan’s second wine.

Intense cassis fruit and new oak on the nose leads to a full-flavoured, ripe palate with smooth tannins and plush vanilla oak finish.
