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, the 2016 is presently ageing in 50% new, French oak barrels. This is ruby-purple of impressive depth, with fragrant, fresh, intense dark berry aromas. First impression is of magnificent, full, juicy fruitiness, then middle-palate shows striking, opulently supple texture, gentle tannins and lively, luscious length. This is a great, complete, vivid Haut-Médoc, with exceptional harmony and superb potential (for drinking 2024-2038+).
