I like the raspberry and blueberry character on the nose and palate. Medium to full body with racy tannins and fresh finish. Fine texture to this for the vintage Needs a few years to soften. Try in 2017.

The La Lagune was picked between 5th September with the Merlot and finished with the Cabernet on 28th a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot yields at 31hl/ha. The nose demands patience: reticent at first but opening up nicely with clean pure strawberry and raspberry aromas laced with subtle forest floor. The palate is medium-bodied with fine balanced on the entry a little gritty and tarry in the mouth but well defined all the way to the linear quite precise finish. It is a "conservative" La Lagune but is commendable for the vintage. Tasted April 2012.

Aged for 18 months in 55% new French oak. Dense purple hue the nose is well integrated with coffee and dark fruit aromas. The palate seems more rustic and chewy than that of recent vintages. Will remain tight for a few years but the ample acidity and tannin should help it improve for an additional 10-15 years. Denis Dubourdieu consults.
