Print the sheet

Ownership & history:

Domaine Bouteiller consists of two estates next door to one another, Château Lanessan and Château de Sainte Gemme. They have been in the Bouteiller family since the 18th century. There is currently something of a renaissance taking place since talented winemaker Paz Espejo took charge in August 2009.

Vineyard & location:

The domain is in the heart of the Médoc close to Saint-Julien, with prestigious neighbours such as Château Lagrange and Château Gruaud Larose.

Harvest, vinification & ageing:

Calèches is the second wine of Château Lanessan. The fruit is harvested by machine at optimal ripeness and screened on a sorting table. The wine is made in concrete tanks with temperature regulation. The fermentation period, racking and ageing in cask are adapted to the vintage and the characteristics of each vintage.
