Tasting Notes:

Pretty berry, chocolate and vanilla character, with medium body, fine tannins and a silky finish. Lacks a bit of punch, but a very good wine. Best after 2006. 17,500 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

Tasted in Bordeaux from an ex-château bottle, the 2000 La Lagune has a ripe brambly red fruit, raspberry preserve and rose petal scented bouquet that is attractive, if not the most complex 2000 Claret you will find. The palate is medium-bodied with dry, slightly disjointed tannins and a rather hollow finish that lacks substance and length. You are left feeling shortchanged by this very average La Lagune. Tasted April 2015.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Château La Lagune is a winery in the Haut-Médoc appellation of the Bordeaux region of France. The wine produced here was classified as one of fourteen Troisièmes Crus (Third Growths) in the historic Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. Rescued from dereliction in 1954 by Georges Brunet, La Lagune was subsequently sold to the Ducellier family of Champagne Ayala. In 2000, both La Lagune and Champagne Ayala were sold to the Frey family. Ayala was then sold to the House of Bollinger, and the Frey family acquired Maison Jaboulet in the Rhone. The Freys are also a substantial but not majority shareholders of Billecart-Salmon, the producer in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Located in the commune of Ludon, La Lagune has 72 hectares (180 acres) under vine with a grape variety distribution of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Petit Verdot.
