Chateau La Lagune 2010
Web Price: $108.00
La Lagune wine posess elegance and balance, two features which typify the great Bordeaux wines. But added freshness, harmony and a touch of femininity grant La Lagune true personality. An exceptional terroir, perfectly mature grapes, careful vinification, respectful aging - therein lies the secret of the La Lagune style.
Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 10% Petit Verdot
94 Points Robert Parker - 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 savoury, 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 last for at least two decades. Think of it as a hypothetical blend of the 2005 and 2009. Kudos!
