Château La Lagune Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

$79.95

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! Robert Parker

Beautiful earthy and savory notes. Ripe red and black fruits. The tannins are dusty and chewy, great structure and super long finish. Really nice!

Surprisingly accessible for such a young wine, still has a long way to go. Love the signature the ten percentage Petit Verdot gives.

Very young but good. With time should show very well. 2010 vintage.

agree with the 94 points from RP. A reference for Haut-Medic. Full-bodied, it combines power and elegance.

Oak, caramel, with cassis and cocoa. Aggressive tannins tied in with red plums. Lots of evolution to come!

Very good to drink now, open and accessible. Tastes like a higher grade left bank, dark fruits, polished tannins and medium bodied. Recommended and can be drink now or kept for another 5 to 7 years.

Enough concentration. Burned and mushroom flavor. 2010 is good right now. @, TMH, 200215

I wish I had more of this before it was gone. Decanted for 2 hours. Black frui and earth. Nice acidity. Smooth tannins. This could easily go another 10+ years.
