CHATEAU LA LAGUNE HAUT MEDOC 2010
La Lagune wine posess elegance and balance, two features which typify the great Bordeaux wines. But added freshness, harmony, and a touch of femininity grant La Lagune true personality. An exceptional terroir, perfectly mature grapes, careful vinification, respectful aging - therein lies the secret of the La Lagune style.
Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 10% Petit Verdot
The Wine Advocate - "Another great success from proprietress Caroline Frey, the 2010 La Lagune provides an essential drinking experience, with notes of Asian plum sauce, mulberries, kirsch liqueur and black currants. The wine also exhibits a savory, rich smokiness and subtle lead pencil shaving notes. Full-bodied and pure, combining both elegance and power, this is a brilliant, very approachable effort that should hit its stride in 5-7 years and last for at least two decades. Think of it as a hypothetical blend of the 2005 and 2009. Kudos!"
James Suckling - "What a lovely texture to the wine, with super soft and supple tannins and blackberry and currant character. Round and juicy. One of the softest and most supple 2010s. It tastes more like a 2009 in style."
Wine Spectator - "This is tangy, with red currant, roasted mesquite, sanguine and tobacco notes. Already shows range and definition, with solid grip.
Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points"
International Wine Cellar - "Bright ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of raspberry syrup, kirsch, dried flowers and cedary, nutty oak. Large-scaled, plush and deep, conveying superb velvety richness of texture without obvious heaviness. This opulent wine finishes with big, sweet tannins, a note of chocolate, and lively notes of mint and herbs. Fat, sexy and flamboyant."
