Chateau La Lagune produces a complex and very fine Haut-Medoc red wine

The estate

Chateau La Lagune is beautifully located on the left bank of Bordeaux. Since 2004, Caroline Frey has put her talent to work in order to elevate Chateau La Lagune to the very top.

The vineyard

Situated on a gravelly hillside, Chateau La Lagun’s vineyard covers 80 hectares. The vines of this very fine reference, among the finest in the Haut-Medoc appellation, are cultivated according to organic and biodynamic farming practices.

The vintage

Autumn was mild and rainy. The winter was cold and dry, except in January and February when there was a excess rainfall. The mildness and low rainfall recorded from April onwards persisted until the end of July. The summer was marked by heatwaves which had an impact on the vineyards. The coolness and rainy periods in August and September favored the ripeness levels. A major rainy episode on October 2nd punctuated a cool, dry month. This year 2015 was thus marked by a significant drought during the vegetative cycle and cooler conditions during the ripening period, thus reducing the risk of water stress and its possible impact on the vineyard. The 2015 harvest took place under sunny and mild weather conditions, alternating with cool nights. These conditions are ideal for achieving an optimal ripeness level and developing a pleasant aromatic expression. The health of the vineyard was impeccable throughout the harvest.

Chateau La Lagune 2015: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Color

The color is a beautiful intense purple.

Nose

The aromatic expression is frank, pure, ample and fresh without lacking finesse. Blackcurrant, crushed blackberries, vanilla notes and violet perfume work together to express the full aromatic brilliance of this wine.

Palate

A punchy attack gives way to a svelte, round and full mouth that possesses a great freshness. The tannic structure seduces with its density as well as its silky and delicate feel. Fleshy and fruity, this very precise wine reveals aromas that resonate with the nose. The finish is complex and powerful offers a great persistence.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 la Lagune is scented of cassis, crushed red currants and dried herbs with a waft of underbrush. The medium-bodied mouth is chewy and refreshing with a good vibrant fruit core and lively finish.
