Chateau La Lagune Haut- Medoc 2008
Chateau La Lagune wines possess elegance and balance, two features which typify the great Bordeaux wines. But add freshness, harmony, and a touch of femininity grant La Lagune true personality. An exceptional terroir, perfectly mature grapes, careful vinification, respectful aging, therein lies the secret of the La Lagune style.
One of the most beautiful wines of the vintage, the dark ruby/purple-colored La Lagune exhibits sweet cassis, camphor, truffle and white chocolate notes presented in a dense, medium to full-bodied, silky textured personality. Filled with purity, finesse, elegance and authoritative flavor intensity, this 2008 is already drinkable and should continue to evolve for 15+ years. Score: 93. Robert Parker, May 2011.
