2009 Moulin La Lagune, Haut-Médoc

SKU #1114857

From the makers of Château La Lagune, the Moulin La Lagune adheres to the same care and standards as the grand vin, but is made in a fresh, easy-to-drink style that includes more Merlot than the La Lagune, as well as Cab and Petit Verdot. Aged for a year in 30-40% new wood, the Moulin La Lagune is a bargain in this vintage, vibrant and bright and enjoyable now. (Clyde Beffa Jr., K&L co-owner and Bordeaux buyer)

The 2nd wine of Chateau La Lagune, while more approachable than its big brother, is still rich, broad and sweet with a fair amount of heft. This has black cherry fruit, aromas of damp earth and a woodsy character that with air turns somewhat smoky and meaty. The sweet tannin on the finish and overall sense of proportion make this very drinkable. Decanting recommended.

The second label of troisième cru Chateau La Lagune, Haut-Médoc. The 2009 vintage yielded a large crop of grapes of exceptional quality, perfect conditions for producing outstanding second wines. The ’09 Moulin de La Lagune is a great example. Intriguing oak spice on the nose with plenty of sweet dark fruit and a rich texture. Can be enjoyed in its youth or cellared for a few years more.

The Cabernet Sauvignon is showing its structure in this wine. Lots of black olives, cassis, coffee and a dusty minerality. The fruit structure is framed by the delicious notes of bitter chocolate and its medium+ acidity and tannins. A very good candidate for the cellars. If you want to drink it now, a good hour in the decanter will reveal all its hidden treasures of a classic Bordeaux.

This wine reminded me of just how many values abound within our Bordeaux selection. Those looking for outstanding drinkable Bordeaux or customers wanting to get their feet wet in the category should not hesitate to pick up a bottle of this one. It's showing beautifully at the moment and is sure to please.

From the makers of Château La Lagune, the Moulin La Lagune adheres to the same care and standards as the grand vin, but is made in a fresh, easy-to-drink style , the Moulin La Lagune is a bargain in this vintage, vibrant and bright and enjoyable now. This is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. And it is perfect right now with one hour of decanting. Plenty of red roses on the nose and palate. Toasty oak and great round tannins make it so good now. Rack of lamb anyone?
Drink from 2016 to 2026

Back in stock again...one of our best selling mid-priced 2009s. I don't know where the King of the Medoc keeps finding these deals on '09s but I'm not complaining...this is a steal.
Top Value!

Another value-driven wine from the team at La Lagune! This is a little more tannic than the Mademoiselle L, but it has plenty of cassis and plum fruit on the nose as well as spice and floral notes. A richly-textured palate with dark fruit has just enough tannic structure to brace it up. This should age suprisingly well.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
