Chateau La Lagune 2016

Product description

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 La Lagune has a medium garnet-purple colour and a nose of intense cassis, warm cherries, redcurrants, and a spice box with earth and bay leaves in the undercurrent. The medium-bodied, earth-laced palate is plush and lively, finishing long.

92 Points - Decanter

This is La Lagune's first certified organic vintage. It's considerably closed compared to when tasted at en primeur; still highly recommended but needs time in bottle. Tight cassis notes are joined by bilberry, black autumnal fruits and some tarry oak. It's a powerful wine with noticeable oak, extremely full tannins and earthy notes. A little raw at present, the high acidity gives a juicy impact. It's matured in 50% new oak, and fined but not filtered before bottling with minimal added SO2. Axel Vallet consults.
