An Elegant and Precise Grand Cru Classe from Medoc

Led by the talented and passionate Caroline Frey, Chateau La Lagune is a 3rd Classified Growth of Haut-Medoc, producing one of the top wines of its appellation, on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region.

Since the purchase of the property by the Frey family in 2000, this iconic Grand Cru Classe has continued to be distinguished by the consistent quality of its wines, bearing vintage after vintage a signature style based on elegance and finesse.

Armed with her conviction and ambition, Caroline Frey has placed her imprint on the wines of the Chateau La Lagune estate. After many years of work among the vines, the 80-hectare vineyard of Chateau La Lagune is now certified organic, managed according to the principles of environmentally friendly viticulture and biodynamic agriculture.

Caroline Frey aims to capture the essence of this magnificent terroir in the great wines of the estate and she does so by first understanding these terroirs fully.

The 2017 vintage will remain engraved in the collective memory of the Bordeaux wine world because of its bad weather. Chateau La Lagune, nevertheless, survived the challenges of the vintage through daily efforts in the vineyard, green harvesting and plot-by-plot vinification in the cellar.

Thanks to the excellent health of the fruit, which achieved optimal ripeness and were full of anthocyanins at the time of harvest, the Chateau La Lagune 2017 presents a beautiful density and color. Revealing the freshness and brilliance of the fruit on the nose, the palate evolves a beautiful structure with friendly and supple tannins. The acidity balances the texture nicely. The purity of the aromatic bouquet, the freshness and balance are the hallmarks of this new vintage of Chateau La Lagune, which is a real classic of the Medoc, capable of great evolution in the bottle.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 la Lagune rolls out of the glass with notes of cherry pie, Black Forest cake and warm cassis plus hints of pencil lead, new leather and spice box. Medium-bodied, the palate has great vibrancy with loads of red berries and earthy layers and a firm, chewy frame, finishing lively.
