Château Lanessan

The estate is located in the municipality of Cussac-Fort Médoc (Haut-Médoc, Bordeaux). In the Bordeaux Classification after the old now no longer valid system, it was last classified in 2003 as "Cru Bourgeois Superieur". The documented origin of the estate goes back to the year 1310, when a Madame Paironne la Montagne, widow of the eponymous Henry de Lanessan, sold the property with a vineyard to a Monsieur de Blaignan. In 1793 it became property of the Delbos family, whose name changed in 1909 by marriage in Bouteiller. On the occasion of the famous Bordeaux Classification In 1855, a sample was omitted because it had not been taken seriously. Since 1961 the estate is managed by Hubert Bouteiller. Also in possession are the two wineries Château Lachesnaye and Château de Sainte Gemme. Worth seeing is a carriage museum in the former stables. According to Robert Parker the wine would earn at least the fifth rank (Cinquième Cru Classé). The vineyards cover 40 hectares of vineyards with Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%), Petit Verdot (5%) and Cabernet Franc (5%). The long-lived red wine matures in barriques for 16 to 18 months. The second wine is called "Les Calèches de Lanessan".
