Château Lanessan is a Bordeaux wine estate in the Haut-Médoc appellation. It describes itself as “Grand Cru Hors Classé” and this refers to the fact that one of the previous owners felt it unnecessary to submit samples for the 1855 Classification and consequently its traditional ranking as a 4ème Cru Classé was never ratified. Lanessan is located just to the south of Gruaud-Larose in the commune of Cussac-Fort-Médoc and has 40 hectares of vineyards. The Chevalier is Château Lanessan’s second wine, with blends that are predominately Cabernet Sauvignon aged in oak barrels for 18 months.

Tasting Notes

Intense color, ranging from ruby to garnet. Black fruit notes with cassis and blackberry, followed by empyreumatic fragrances that vary between vanilla and roasting. The young reds are full-bodied, marked by a hint of oak and hints of sweet spices. After a few years of aging, the tannins melt in your mouth.

Food Pairing

The wines of Château Lanessan are best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes.
