The 2021 Lanessan is a tasty, mid-weight Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois that very much reflects the style of the year. Bright floral accents, red berry fruit, mint, exotic spice and blood orange fill out the layers effortlessly. This is very nicely done. 88-90 Antonio Galloni.

Upfront and juicy but with a tension to it, quite focused and streamlined at this point. Fine but slightly chalky tannins give the gentle structure while the flavours persist in one line from start to finish. Could be quite severe but the tannins are soft and this has a juicy red fruit appeal with some bramble, cedar and toast aspects on the finish. Will be lovely and easy to enjoy. Eric Boissenot consultant. 1% Cabernet Franc completes the blend. 89 Georgina Hindle, Decanter.

A successful effort, the 2021 Lanessan exhibits aromas of cassis, pencil shavings and loamy soil, followed by a medium to full-bodied, lively and supple palate that's fleshy and enveloping, framed by powdery tannins and bright acids. I suspect this estate could aim even higher, but they have produced an attractive 2021. 88-90 William Kelley
