ABOUT THE WINERY One of the oldest estates in the Médoc dating from the 14th century, Lanessan was not classified in 1855 as they failed to submit a sample. Had they done so, some specialists believe that it would have been listed as a Fifth Growth. Not particularly great news for the château owners, but for its consumers on the other hand... This cru bourgeois property is very well placed. It lies just across the stream which divides the Haut-Médoc from Saint-Julien, on a ridge of Bordeaux’s famous Garonne gravel, and is in sight of both Beychevelle and Branaire-Ducru. Technically it has been in the same family since 1793, when it was purchased by Jean Delbos. In 1907, his granddaughter married into the Bouteiller family in 1907, who continues to own the property to this day. Since 2009 it has been run by the energetic young winemaker Paz Espejo.
