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 and earthy 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 notes. Needs some aging. Nice!

Out of Magnum. From the phenomenal 82’ vintage, dense and mature, sweet black cherries and red currants transition to damp earth, tobacco and hints of cedar. The tannins are sweet and supple and the finish is long, plush and silky.

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)

Has long history that dates back to the 16th century, under King Henri IV. In 1999, Chateau La Lagune was sold to the Frey family, and 2000 was their first vintage. A blend of 60% Cab Sauv, 35% Merlot & 5% Petit Verdot, aged 14 months in French, 50% new. Aromas of fruits, floral and earthy notes. On the palate cherry and sweet plum flavors, notes of cacao and licorice with underlying freshness. Fine tannins, tight needed more time, great mouthfeel, lingering ending with oak & tart fruits. Very nice!

Consistently good experience with La Lagune which I can’t say for some of the fancier classed growths...this one was maybe slightly past it but still a treat

Earthy and characterful with crushed woodland berries, plum, mint, cedar and hints of sweet undergrowth. It was soft on the palate, with brisk acidity, savory minerals and tart red berry fruits. The finish was long, and slightly tart, yet also savory and stimulating--a great food wine and in a very nice place.

Black currant with some Mint and Leafy notes. Chest of cedar drawers. Dusty medium bodied palate with medium intensity and length. A nice silkiness to the fine grained tannins with a hint of bitterness. In its development very much on the plateau and could stay there for a while yet before tapering off. Summation: A good 3rd Growth in an excellent vintage.
