Full concentrated and sweet in the mouth with ripe flavors of currant plum and smoke. Thanks to the wine's very good stuffing the broad sweet tannins come across as smooth today. Finishes with very good aromatic persistence. Quite harmonious already. 90 points

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London and at Farr Vintners' blind horizontal, the 2006 Château La Lagune showed marked variation between bottles. One felt a little fatigued on the nose, but another was more attractive with Hoisin and white pepper scents filtering through the black fruit. The palate feels a little pinched, but with continued bottle age I can see this developing more depth and complexity, demonstrating pleasing composure on the finish. Tasted April 2016. - Neal Martin

Label

La Lagune wines possess elegance and balance, two features which typify the great Bordeaux wines. Freshness, harmony, and a touch of femininity grant La Lagune true personality which is recognized by Bordeaux’s greatest oenologists like Emile Peynaud and Denis Dubourdieu.

The secret of the La Lagune style lies in an exceptional terroir, perfectly mature grapes, careful vinification, and respectful ageing.

Winery

Lagune, La

Chateau La Lagune is a wine estate in Haut Medoc ranked as a 3rd Growth Grand Cru Classe Bordeaux. Its history can be traced back to the 16th century under King Henri IV when Dutch engineers started to plant vines on reclaimed land.

The mansion was constructed in the 18th century by Baron Victor Louis (who designed the Grand Theater in Bordeaux) and the estate remained in the De Seze family for many generations.

During the 1950’s, La Lagune succumbed to the economic crisis brought by the war, and the great frosts of 1956. By the time George Brunette purchased the property in 1958, only a few hectares were still in production. He undertook an extensive renovation program but was later forced to sell the property to the Ducellier family of Champagne Ayala due to heavy financial demands. The property is now owned by the Frey family whose other wine interests include Maison Jaboulet.

The Lagune vineyard is ideally located on one of the most perfect gravel hillocks and is organically farmed. It covers 80 hectares which are planted with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot.
