Château La Lagune develops a 3rd Grand Cru Classé of Bordeaux whose blend combines the emblematic varieties of Medoc - Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot - and offers, throughout the vintages, wines recognized for their balance, finesse and elegance . In this same spirit of excellence, the property also produces a second wine, called 'Moulin de la Lagune', and since 2004, a third cuvee named 'Mademoiselle L'. Planted on one of the most perfect gravelly hills in the region, the La Lagune vineyard extends over 80 hectares, where winemaker Caroline Frey has been working for many years to establish an environmentally friendly viticulture based on Practices from organic and biodynamic agriculture. It is above all to preserve the terroirs, the soil and the vines, but also the health of the winegrowers who work there. The official transition to organic conversion was initiated in 2013, with certification scheduled for the 2016 harvest. This natural and adapted approach to each plot plays a fundamental role in the quality of the wines. It allows the fruit to draw from the soil all the complexity and finesse of a terroir, to restore them, thanks to a patient and precise vinification and a barrel breeding carried out according to the traditional method.
Another great success from proprietress Caroline Frey, the 2010 La Lagune provides an essential drinking experience, with notes of Asian plum sauce, mulberries, kirsch liqueur and black currants. The wine also exhibits a savory, rich smokiness and subtle lead pencil shaving notes. Full-bodied and pure, combining both elegance and power, this is a brilliant, very approachable effort that should hit its stride in 5-7 years and last for at least two decades. Think of it as a hypothetical blend of the 2005 and 2009. Kudos!
A blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot, the La Lagune already has an expressive bouquet with ripe blackberry, bilberry, cedar and tobacco with good clarity and brightness. The palate is simple classic Cabernet with lovely, savoury-tinged black fruits, good acidity, very harmonious and natural towards the finish. Reserved but great length and persistency in the mouth, this is a great, great La Lagune. Tasted April 2011.
