Château La Lagune Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2009

$74.99

It is not unusual that the 2009 La Lagune is a spectacular effort given the fact that this estate has been making terrific wines over the last decade or more. It boasts a dense purple color as well as a beautiful perfume of blueberries, mulberries, cassis, white chocolate and subtle toasty oak. Notes of Chinese black tea, cedarwood and forest floor also make an appearance in the singular aromatic and flavor profiles. This sumptuous, full-bodied La Lagune possesses low acidity, abundant but ripe, sweet tannin and a long, 45-second finish... Robert Parker

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.

Inky, dark, red cherry color. Sweet tobacco, gentlemen's musk, white, creamy floral on the nose. The palette is smooth, velvet, with very subtle layers. I can see why some reviews have mentioned that it seems flat. It doesn't have tannic layers. This wine is super elegant, non-pretentious and easy to drink alone or with non-complex dishes. Could easily age another 10+ years but what's the fun in that!! Drink now!

Good tasting, finished with this "troisieme" red and black fruits, on the nose and the palate, long finish and well structured, 09 is a great vintage rich and ripe, no need for more aging

Dark red with a wonderful dry fruit. Paired with lamb and added a dense flavor.

Powerful, but still true to the area. Many '09's seem new world. Roots run deep in

Well balanced, not too big. Decanting helped as this was a little close to the vest. wb
