Ch La Lagune is re-claiming its position as one of the Haut-Médoc’s leading Classed Growths. The Frey family has, since 2000, been investing in vineyard re-structuring, winery modernisation and barrel-storage improvements. Ploughing has been re-introduced, and the estate is now 100% organic. Composed of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Robert Parker 93-95 points - "Lucid purple/black in color, it has a very intense bouquet with blackberries and sloes, whilst maintaining delineation and focus, almost pastille-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannin, perhaps just a little brittle on the entry, though it is commensurate with others 2016s that I tasted in barrel. I appreciate the focus and the "correctness" of this La Lagune, notwithstanding the freshness and tension that defines the persistent finish. This is a long-term wine, so do not be afraid to give this four or five years in the cellar. This is an excellent La Lagune, one of the best in recent years." Drink: 2023 - 2045.
