2000 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc

SKU #1013666 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good medium ruby. Blackberry, espresso and spicy oak on the nose. Pliant, fairly rich flavors of black fruits and licorice. Finishes with lush tannins, a note of melting Valrhona chocolate and good length. (ST)  (6/2001)

Vinous

 The 2000 La Lagune was the first vintage to use a sorting table. It has a clean and expressive bouquet with redcurrant jam and raspberry preserved mixed with gravel and tobacco scents, nicely defined if not overly complex. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, tightly wound black fruit tinged with tar and sea salt. (NM)  (4/2018)

Wine Spectator

 Pretty berry, chocolate and vanilla character, with medium body, fine tannins and a silky finish, a very good wine. (JS)  (3/2003)

K&L Notes

40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Verdot. Here and in the Southern Medoc, Cabernet Franc did well in 2000. Perhaps because of the slightly warmer temperatures and longer sun hours in this region. At La Lagune, which translated means "a pond", the water table is quite high (only one meter down) so that drought years don't present much of a problem for the grapes' nourishment. A perfumed nose of vanilla oak and black fruits. Some black licorice flavors. A classic style - pure and delicious.
