Located on the terrace of alluvial gravel bordering the river. The "Village de La Lagune" was a tenant farm in its place and gradually transformed into a wine-growing estate. Dark purple with red fruits spice, cedar and flinty aromas. On the palate blackberry and cherry flavors with cedar, cacao, tobacco and leather notes. Fine sweet tannins, well balanced on long finish ending with fruit, spice and earthy mineral notes. Nice!

The vintage does not have a great reputation and indeed there’s an austerity to it, which I actually kind of enjoy. It tastes old school. There is some sweet black currant, morello cherry and cassis at the core, some wood and burned coffee notes, wrapped in astringent tannins. A curmudgeon but it cracks a warm smile every now and then

Clean slightly subdued, merlot prevelant on nose medium bodied earthy and delicious with porcini risotto.

‘78 Vintage. Dark cherry, kirsch, dusty on the nose. Fig, prune and beautiful integrated tannins. Good grip.

The 2015 La Lagune is terrific. Powerful and dense on the palate, with big, potent tannins, it will need at least a few years to fully come together. Hints of tobacco, cedar, licorice and smoke add shades of aromatic nuance. This is a fabulous effort. Don't miss it. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, February 2018)
