En Primeur Chateau La Lagune 2016 is now available for sale
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 alongside biodynamic principles. The wine style of La Lagune is rich and fleshy with a lot of vanilla and dark cherry aromas.
“Now certified organic, and converting to biodynamics from this year. It displays a confident weight to the damson fruits that are hugely elegant and well placed. A little closed when tasted on two occasions, and the high Petit Verdot content of this wine is no doubt contributing to its slight austerity at this stage, but it also brings that beautifully welcome whoosh of black fruit spicing. Very good quality, elegant and long-ageing, just a dash below the exceptional 2015.” Drink: 2027-2045 – 93pts, Jane Anson, Decanter
