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

SKU #1357383 92-93 points James Suckling

 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.  (4/2018)

92 points Decanter

 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)  (4/2018)

90-92 points Vinous

 The 2017 La Lagune was picked from 12 September until 30 September at 31hl/ha, matured in 50% new oak. It has a very clean and pure bouquet, quite floral in style, with scents of raspberry confit, crushed stone, a touch of mint and pressed flowers. This is precise and focused, one of the most refined bouquet that I have encountered on a La Lagune at this early stage. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chalky tannin on the entry that presage a tensile, mineral-driven La Lagune. There is almost a flint-like element to this wine, like the nose, the palate extremely precise with a sustained Pauillac-inspired finish with pencil lead on the aftertaste. (NM)  (4/2018)

88-91 points Jeb Dunnuck

 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.  (4/2018)

88-90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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)  (4/2018)
