2019 Château La Lagune, 3ème Grand Cru Classé Haut-Médoc is released.
Château La Lagune is a 3éme Cru Classé Haut Medoc dating back from 1715 and located 10 miles from the city of Bordeaux. The property was sold to the firm Ayala Champagne in 1961 and became the first Château to have a woman managing the estate a few years later. This is still the case today with Caroline Frey running the estate and working with biodynamic principles. The wine style of La Lagune is rich and fleshy with a lot of vanilla and dark cherry aromas.
The 2019 La Lagune has a finely chiseled bouquet, a mélange of red and black fruit, touches of damp clay, undergrowth and cedar developing with time. These aromatics are very nuanced and deserve time, not impactful but intellectual. The palate is medium-bodied with fine but firm tannins. Very linear and correct in style, it feels fresh and sapid, though I would have liked more flair to show through on the saline finish. Still, I like the grip and I suspect it will give 25-30 years drinking pleasure. – 92-94 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous
