In a sumptuous vintage signing the comeback of high-precision Cabernet Sauvignon, the La Lagune 2009 has most probably achieved one of its greatest vintages since 1982. Born from exceptional conditions, this wine has learned the quintessence of this vintage the offer it on to consumer. Dark crimson on purple fringes even with some shades of blue, La Lagune 2009 captures the solar character of the year. Rich, complex even if it expresses a certain olfactory retention (the wine is very dense), the nose offers a concert of black fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry), enhanced by expressions of oak and heady black tea. Swelling dissipates the toasted touch to reveal the balsamic character of the wine. Elongated on the palate, straightforward, dynamic thanks to its vibrant freshness, this Haut-Médoc is smooth with very civilized fine tannins. A bottle of character to appreciate even roughly until 2040.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
It is not unusual that the 2009 La Lagune is a spectacular effort given the fact that this estate has been making terrific wines over the last decade or more. It boasts a dense purple color as well as a beautiful perfume of blueberries, mulberries, cassis, white chocolate and subtle toasty oak. Notes of Chinese black tea, cedarwood and forest floor also make an appearance in the singular aromatic and flavor profiles. This sumptuous, full-bodied La Lagune possesses low acidity, abundant but ripe, sweet tannin and a long, 45-second finish. Give this beauty 5-7 years of bottle age and drink it over the following three decades.
