Ch. Les Caleches de Lanessan Haut-Medoc 2009

Merlot from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 20-Jun-2012
The second wine of Ch. Lanessan, 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Medium-deep ruby-red colour. This has a softly presented nose with layers of aromas, earthy red fruits revealing funky game notes, a little brettanomyces present. Fullish bodied, this has sweet and lush red berry fruits, quite bright with discreet acidity behind the flavours. This has a good core, with some tannin backbone, but the palate is open and fulsome. The wine has a sustained finish. This is a rich and full wine, showing some gamey funkiness. 4-6+ years 16.5+/20 Jun 2012 RRP $25.50
