Magnificently located on Bordeaux's Left Bank, Château La Lagune is one of the finest references in the Haut-Médoc appellation. This estate, the 3rd Grand Cru classé 1855, is located on the prestigious ‘’Châteaux Route’’ that runs through the Médoc. At the head of the estate since 2004, the young and talented oenologist, Caroline Frey, has been injecting all her energy, passion and determination into this wine in order to raise Château La Lagune to the highest level.
Perched on an alluvial terrace overlooking the Garonne, the terroir of La Lagune represents the Médoc model. The 80 hectares of vines are planted on light gravel and silica soils. Since 2016, the Château holds an organic certification.
Winemaking and ageing
The perfectly ripe grapes are harvested between the 22nd of September and the 7th of October. They are then transported to the vat room in small crates, in order to preserve the fruit. The grapes are then sorted before being transferred, using a gravity flow method, to the stainless steel vats. The wines are then aged in barrels, using the traditional method. The final blend is carries out during the ageing process, with the wines from the best plots.
