2010 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc

SKU #1131288 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This shows an enchanting nose of roses, violets and other flowers. It's also fruity but very subtle. A full-body, super-structured red with an excellent backbone of ripe yet firm tannins. Goes on for minutes. Don’t touch for five or six years. Try in 2019. Inner quote mark (3/2015)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Another great success from proprietress Caroline Frey, the 2010 La Lagune provides an essential drinking experience, with notes of Asian plum sauce, mulberries, kirsch liqueur and black currants. The wine also exhibits a savory, rich smokiness and subtle lead pencil shaving notes. Full-bodied and pure, combining both elegance and power, this is a brilliant, very approachable effort that should hit its stride in 5-7 years and last for at least two decades. Think of it as a hypothetical blend of the 2005 and 2009. Kudos! (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2013)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of raspberry syrup, kirsch, dried flowers and cedary, nutty oak. Large-scaled, plush and deep, conveying superb velvety richness of texture without obvious heaviness. This opulent wine finishes with big, sweet tannins, a note of chocolate, and lively notes of mint and herbs. Fat, sexy and flamboyant. Inner quote mark (7/2013)

89-92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is tangy, with red currant, roasted mesquite, sanguine and tobacco notes. Already shows range and definition, with solid grip. (Web Only-2011) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

La Lagune is a 3rd Growth Haut-Médoc from fairly south in the Haut Medoc, now owned by the Frey family of the fantastic Champagne house Billecart-Salmon. The soils of La Lagune are therefore lighter and gravelly somewhat like Graves. La Lagune also has the great distinction of being at the forefront of modernity in 1964 by installing the first woman to manage the estate (to great success I might add, and still managed extremely well by Caroline Frey). When the Frey family took over this estate they took the entire production to an even greater level and the wines now are very successful both in reviews and customer opinions and are producing fantastic wines. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. *½.
