Ch La Lagune is re-claiming its position as one of the Haut-Médoc’s leading Classed Growths. Since 2000, the Frey family has dramatically invested in vineyard re-structuring, winery modernisation and barrel-storage improvements. Ploughing has been re-introduced, with chemical treatments eliminated from the vines.
Composed of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, aged in 50% new French oak barrels. Selection of only the very best vats resulted in just one third of the property’s 2015 production making it into the Grand Vin. This is ruby-purple of impressive depth, with fragrant, fresh and spicy aromas. First impression is of magnificent, dense fruitiness, then middle-palate shows striking, opulently rich texture, gentle tannins and luscious length. This is a great, complete Haut-Médoc, with exceptional harmony and superb potential (for drinking 2022-2035+).
