  • The 2009 La Lagune is quite simply put an awesome wine. Offering an enticingly lavish deep and thick ruby core this beauty is packed with exuberant aromas of blueberries, dried cranberries, lavender and vanillin. Medium to full bodied and youthfully tannic, yet endowed with a soft and silky texture, this superb concoction spoils the palate with layer upon layer of white chocolate, raspberries, caramel and black currant. An infant that still needs another couple of years before it begins to open up, but make no mistake this is an outstanding wine with a long an bright future ahead of it. It should provide drinking pleasure for the next two decades.

  • Black, thick, viscous, dark fruits, espresso, low acid, little complexity. Missing some mid-palate fruit in the ripeness, maybe this will develop with time to warrant a higher score.

  • Dégustation GEEU chez Enrico (Geneva): Non décanté mais ouvert environ 2 heures avant de déguster.
    Robe quasi atramentaire. Nez sur la vanille, le bois précieux, le havane, le cassis.
    La bouche est très concentrée et prendra du temps à se fondre complètement pour gagner en harmonie. Mais c'est tout de même déjà très bon à boire...

  • A strong showing from this off-the-beaten path winery. Admittedly drunk young, this was very similar to a great Napa cab with tremendous concentration of fruit. I would not have guessed old-world, for better or worse.

  • Bought 6 bottles last year, opened the first one a few days ago. Double decanted. Lush and round, the tannins of this young wine still grip the pallet. While it's very good, it is a waste to drink now - I will give it 5 years before opening the next one.

    (Château La Lagune (Haut-Médoc)) This vintage has a seductive nose with a gentle spice laid on top of the fruit. It is fresh, polished, with a lovely weight and balance. This does not have the overt oak it used to possess in vintages of old - has it been scaled back in more recent years? Today it seems fresh, supple and harmonious on the palate, with lifting acidity. It does have a quite definite core of substantial tannins, but they sit very neatly within the body of the wine. This is very good indeed.
