Voyage de Lanessan 2012
A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot
The grapes are harvested mechanically when optimally ripe, then screened with an optical sorting system. They are fermented in coated concrete tanks at controlled temperatures with short vatting periods to ensure gentle extraction, thus preserving the fruit and roundness of the tannins.
More-ish bouquet of cherries, black fruit and sweet spice. Silky and fleshy on the palate with a chewy finish of liquorice and red fruit compote. Produced in a classic style, the wine is silky in the mouth combining flavours of fruit and powdery tannins that bring character to the finish. An altogether very appealing prospect for people not so familiar with the joy Bordeaux can produce.
