2017 La Lagune, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1357383 92-93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A firm and silky young wine with beautiful currants, blackberries, cedar and tobacco. Full-bodied, juicy and long. Love the lively acidity and freshness to this. Fine tannin structure. Higher percentage of cabernet sauvignon in the blend this year gives it a pretty pureness. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This has clear damson flesh to the fruit, a good plummy wine with an elegance and freshness to the tannins. It's good, linear with a precision that you don't find everywhere. This is still not quite at the 2015/16 level of completeness, but delivers from start to finish, and is a wine that should age well. It has a 2001 type of elegance and lift with a tension to the tannins that gives confidence in its ageing ability. Now certified organic, in conversion for biodynamics. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 La Lagune is powerful and dense, but also a bit rough around the edges. Tobacco, game, licorice, smoke and dried flowers along with big, coarse tannins give the 2017 its decidedly hearty feel. Even so, there is quite a bit of complexity and plenty of personality. The 2017 is not exactly finessed, but it has a lot going on. The 2017 needs time to come together, but it is promising, that is for sure. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2020)

88-91 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A brilliant Haut-Médoc, the 2017 Château La Lagune has impressive density and depth as well as medium body, a straight, tight, focused texture, a big mid-palate, and classic dark fruits, tobacco, and earth aromas and flavors. It’s well worth seeking out and will keep for two decades. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

88-90 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The deep garnet-purple colored 2017 la Lagune has wonderful black raspberries, black cherries and mulberries scents with an earthy undercurrent and a waft of bay leaves. The palate is medium-bodied with lovely freshness, a soft texture and plenty of poise. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2018)
