Château Lanessan Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 1975

Member Review by cellarbook:

I had a bottle of the '75 Lanessan last night from a case I bought on initial release. At 35 years old, it has amazing life and depth of flavor. Still quite dark and with tannin yet to lose, it blossomed in the glass after about half an hour. The '75s were notoriously hard, but this one has rewarded my patience and should get even better in a few years. It's always fascinating to drink older wines that have lasted well, and this bottle was no exception.
