2009 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc (1.5L)

SKU #1093923 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 (3/2016)

93-96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Floral and precise fruit, with blackberry-skin character and mineral undertones. Full-bodied, with superfine tannins and a fresh, clean finish. Long and tight. Racy. Lovely texture. 60 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 25 percent Merlot and 15 percent Petit Verdot. This property is really on a roll now, delivering racy and structured reds; it gives much more freshness and character to the wine. (JS, Web Only-2010) Inner quote mark

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark It is not unusual that the 2009 La Lagune is a spectacular effort given the fact that this estate has been making terrific wines over the last decade or more. It boasts a dense purple color as well as a beautiful perfume of blueberries, mulberries, cassis, white chocolate and subtle toasty oak. Notes of Chinese black tea, cedarwood and forest floor also make an appearance in the singular aromatic and flavor profiles. This sumptuous, full-bodied La Lagune possesses low acidity, abundant but ripe, sweet tannin and a long, 45-second finish. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2012)

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. A yield of 45hl/ha. 50% new oak. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2020)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (60% cabernet sauvignon, 30% merlot and 10% petit verdot): Deep, bright ruby-red. Sexy aromas of currant, underbrush, leather and toasty oak. Plush, seamless and sweet; full-bodied but not heavy. Pliant flavors of currant, plum and earth expand to fill the mouth. Finishes with broad, fine tannins and sneaky building length. Classic Old World claret from a ripe year: velvety, sweet and long. Inner quote mark (7/2012)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Tasted blind. 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. (JR) 17-/20 Inner quote mark (2/2019)

K&L Notes

*½ The high proportion of Petit Verdot really lifts this wine. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 15% Petit Verdot. One of our most successful-selling 2009s. It is stunningly good-so sweet and lush on the palate. It drinks well now and will for 50 years in this format (Clyde Beffa, K&L Bordeaux Buyer)
