95

A focused and savory red with sleek and tight tannins. Very precise. Medium-bodied with fresh herbs, currants, blackberries and oyster shells. Stones and dried flowers, too. Fine finish. Tannins are round and complete. Already approachable. From biodynamically grown grapes.

94 William Kelley - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2020 La Lagune has turned out beautifully, offering up aromas of cassis, dark berries, loamy soil and sweet spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, velvety, layered palate that exhibits excellent depth and concentration structured around powdery tannins, concluding with a perfumed, violet-inflected finish. This is a strong effort and a worthy, somewhat more muscular follow-up to the sensual, charming 2019.

TOP SCORING DECANTER WINE TASTING FROM HAUT MEDOC, MEDOC, MOULIS & LISTRAC This comes in strong with both grip and attitude. Some austerity that shows through in the abundant tannic frame, but there is a juiciness that runs through the palate, a sense that it is light on its feet. Liquorice, black chocolate and a spiced tomato leaf adds layers, but things close down on the finish. This is certified organic and in biodynamic conversion. A yield of 30hl/ha.

Product Description:

Château La Lagune produces a 3rd Grand Cru Classé de Bordeaux whose blend brings together the emblematic grape varieties of the Médoc – Cabernet-Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot – and offers over the vintages wines recognized for their balance, finesse and elegance. . In this same spirit of excellence, the property also produces a second wine, called 'Moulin de La Lagune', and, since 2004, a third vintage called 'Mademoiselle L'. Planted on one of the most perfect gravelly ridges in the region, the La Lagune vineyard extends over 80 hectares, where Caroline has worked for many years to establish environmentally friendly viticulture, based on practices from organic and biodynamic agriculture. Above all, it is about preserving the terroirs, soils and vines, but also the health of the winegrowers who work there. The official transition to organic conversion was initiated in 2013, with certification planned for the 2016 harvest. This natural approach, adapted to each plot, plays a fundamental role in the quality of the wines. It allows the fruit to draw from the soil all the complexity and finesse of a terroir, to return them to us, thanks to patient and precise vinification and aging in barrels carried out according to the traditional method.
