Robert Parker ~ 87-89 Points

"Lanessan's 2001 is a consistent overachiever in Haut-Medoc. It is a seriously-extracted, dark ruby/purple-colored offering with ripe cassis fruit, notes of leather and earth, and a hint of truffles. It is medium-bodied, pure, and savory, with copious tannin."

2001 VINTAGE

87-89 Lanessan's 2001 is a consistent overachiever in Haut-Medoc. This wine nearly rivals the outstanding 2000. It is a seriously-extracted, dark ruby/purple-colored offering with ripe cassis fruit, notes of leather and earth, and a hint of truffles. It is medium-bodied, pure, and savory, with copious tannin. It will age well for 10-15 years.
Its intense red robe with garnet tints is as expressive as its bouquet with subtle hints of rose water, slightly jammy fruit and cinnamon. Its subtle, tasty tannins give it promising ageing potential.
16.5 Healthy crimson. Low-key, classic nose. Round and neat. Lovely, dry finish. Good meaty stuff in a traditional mould. Not big though. Jancis Robinson
