2008 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)
93 points Robert Parker: "One of the most beautiful wines of the vintage, the dark ruby/purple-colored La Lagune exhibits sweet cassis, camphor, truffle and white chocolate notes presented in a dense, medium to full-bodied, silky textured personality. Filled with purity, finesse, elegance and authoritative flavor intensity, this 2008 is already drinkable and should continue to evolve for 15+ years." (05/11) 90-92 points Tanzer's IWC: "Deep ruby-purple. Impressively deep aromas of ripe blackcurrant, balsamic plum and violet soar from the glass, with a strong petit verdot note of violet. Rich blackberry syrup and black cherry flavors display laser-like precision thanks to refreshingly firm acids. Finishes long, with already smooth tannins conveying an impression of volume and flesh." (May/June '09) Four stars and 17.5 points from Decanter: "Black-red, pure blackcurrants on the nose, dense but lifted and suave flavours, seductive style yet great length and lovely polished tannins. Drink 2014-22." Please note - 2008 Bordeaux futures are not in stock, but will arrive between Jan 2011 and Dec 2011 We will contact you for shipping instructions.
