2009 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc

SKU #1086315 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Fabulous aromas of licorice, flowers and blackcurrants follow through to a full body with wonderful silky and caressing tannins and a long, flavorful finish. It’s complex and exceptional. Inner quote mark (3/2015)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The greater power and intensity that comes from the 2009 vintage is hugely seductive, lending an extra dimension to a wine that feels similar in shape and feel to the brilliant 2005. Again, it's the brambly blackberry fruits that are so striking, and the unfussy way that it builds through the palate and hangs on. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2009 La Lagune was showing some reduction on the nose but it eventually blows off and so decant this for one to two hours if opening soon. It has a powerful nose with plenty of ripe red and black fruit with maybe just a hint of over-maturity when compared to the 2010 La Lagune. There is something a little feral here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, tons of quite spiced black fruit laced with bay leaf, black tea and a pinch of white pepper. It leads to a grippy and nicely structured finish that lingers long in the mouth. (NM) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 la Lagune opens with an earthy, Band-Aid and menthol-laced nose with a core of crème de cassis, plum preserves and Provence herbs plus a waft of tree bark. Medium to full-bodied, firm and chewy, with a pleasant earth-laced palate, it has appealing layers and harmony, if it tails off just a little rustic. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Blackish-purplish crimson. Heady with a hint of sweet oak. Proper savoury left-bank claret with an overlay of the ripeness of the vintage. This tastes almost like Pichon Lalande! Very well made. Long. 17/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2019)

Absolutely delicious. Cassis, cocoa and woodsy. It is ripe but perfectly balanced with the tannin and acidity in the right place. It is soft and elegant.

The high proportion of Petit Verdot really lifts this wine. Tons of black licorice on the nose and palate. Lush wine, but it has good grip. Fresh and vibrant. I love this wine-it is so pure and seamless.

If you are looking for great 2009 Bordeaux for your cellar, the 2009 La Lagune Haut Medoc should be at the top of your list. This property sits in the southern part of the Haut-Medoc and routinely out does its neighbors in Margaux with its generous, ethereal aromatics. This 2009 is concentrated, but the power is only part of the story. For me it is the overall balance and finesse of this classic claret that makes it so noteworthy- all it needs is time!

Deeply colored, aromatic, floral and spicy. Loads of dark, sweet fruit. Unbelievably bright and fresh. A superb effort.

This was one of my favorites of the 09 tasting. The nose was layered with red berry fruit, mineral and a slight damp earth in the background. The polished palate was red and black fruit and graphite with a long long finish. Elegant and rich at the same time. Beautiful.
