Decanter,
This really does show just how fabulous the southern Médoc area was in 2015: it just begs for enjoyment.

It has that signature purity of fruit that Caroline Frey has perfected, coupled with a long finish that ends crisply and cleanly. The cassis and cinnamon spice notes of a 65% Cabernet, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot blend sing out, along with the menthol lick of a good Médoc.

This is loaded with healthy tannins on the palate that drive the long finish. Quite an uncompromising young wine that will be better from 2020, but the fundamental harmony is very convincing.

Cassis, toasty oak, Asian spices, and black tea notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, layered and lengthy Haut-Médoc. Count me in as a fan and it’s up with the top wines produced from this estate. collapse

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

La Lagune

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.
