Proprietress Caroline Frey has elevated the quality at La Lagune since acquiring this estate and the 2010 is another superb effort as well as one of the better values in Bordeaux. An opaque purple color is followed by an extraordinary perfume of black raspberries black currants licorice and subtle smoke and graphite. While uber-concentrated full-bodied and pure it retains both elegance and precision as well as a sensational 45-second finish. The suppleness of the tannins and stunning opulence suggest it will drink beautifully for 25+ years.

A blend of 55% Merlot 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot the La Lagune already has an expressive bouquet with ripe blackberry bilberry cedar and tobacco with good clarity and brightness. The palate is simple classic Cabernet with lovely savoury-tinged black fruits good acidity very harmonious and natural towards the finish. Reserved but great length and persistency in the mouth this is a great great La Lagune.

What a lovely texture to the wine with super soft and supple tannins and blackberry and currant character. Round and juicy. One of the softest and most supple 2010s. It tastes more like a 2009 in style. 50% Cabernet... What a lovely texture to the wine with super soft and supple tannins and blackberry and currant character. Round and juicy.

This is tangy with red currant roasted mesquite sanguine and tobacco notes. Already shows range and definition with solid grip. -J.M.

Knockout nose combines raspberry violet spicy oak minerals and dried herbs. Wonderfully tangy and delineated with excellent thrust and concentration to its blackberry and sweet spice flavors. Still this comes across as a bit youthfully closed and hiding as much as it's showing today. Finishes long and scented with substantial but fine tannins. Combining finesse with power this very impressive La Lagune ought to age very well and my guess is that it will develop significant complexity.
