Presiding over the Left Bank of Bordeaux, Château La Lagune is one of the most splendid estates of the Haut-Médoc appellation. Caroline Frey has, since 2004, put her talent to work to elevate Château la Lagune to the top.
Château La Lagune is a Haut-Médoc wine that stems from a vineyard of 80 hectares planted on a gravelly hillside. The vines are worked on biological and biodynamic agricultural practices.
The harvests began on 22 September (on the young merlot plots) to finish on 13 October, having gathered a yield of gorgeous petit verdot and sumptuous cabernet sauvignon. The winemaking process rapidly showed promise with the aromatic intensity of the musts and the first phenolic analyses.
Delicious and expressive, the nose mingles with purity scents of fresh black fruits with a wonderful olfactory depth.
The palate entices with deliciously fine and creamy tannins and a precision mingled with a great structure as well as a subtly spicy finish.
The 2014 La Lagune is a wine that showed extremely well when I tasted it from barrel. Now in bottle, it has a very well defined, quite intense bouquet with blackberry, cedar and pencil box aromas--classic in style, demonstrating impressive breeding. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin, bright and vivacious black fruit laced with graphite, fine mineralité and it fans out wonderfully on the Pauillac-like finish. You know, I suspect this might even surpass the 2015 La Lagune... let's see. This is excellent.
