The Story

Château La Lagune is a 3éme Cru Classé property that produces some of the finest wines in the Haut-Médoc AC. La Lagune's history dates back to 1715 when its handsome château was constructed. The vineyards were first planted in 1724. 

La Lagune had hit hard times and fallen into disrepair when Georges Brunet bought it in 1954. He replanted the vineyards and totally renovated the chai. By the time he sold it to the Ayala Champagne firm in 1961, the property had been transformed.

La Lagune is the first property you pass driving out of Bordeaux on the Route de Vins. It is in fact only 15 kilometres from Bordeaux city. There are 72 hectares of vineyards planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (20%), Cabernet Franc (10%), and Petit Verdot (10%). The grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks and the wine is then aged in oak barriques (70-80% new) for 15-18 months.

Dark purple red colour with violet hue and almost black core. Rich nose with distinct berry fruit, hints of blackberry jam, ripe strawberries, discreet spiciness, vanilla and cardamom, elegant roasting aroma. On the palate well structured with rich fruit, silky tannins and excellent length.

Deep colour. Beautiful wine. Lovely intense pure blackcurrant aromas and flavours with hints of dark chocolate and herbs. Supple wine with smooth velvety structure and attractive espresso notes. Finishes chocolaty and long with bitter-sweet notes. Very well made wine. 95 points
