Haut Medoc Protected Designation of Origin and Third Great Classed Growth
The Frey family has owned Chateau La Lagune for 20 years. The Lagune estate is a Haut Medoc Troisieme Grand Cru Classe (Classification of 1855) that was, from 1962 to 2000, the property of Champagne Ayala House. Chateau La Lagune is located 10 km North of Bordeaux (Left bank of the Garonne), near Chateau Cantemerle. 6,700 vine stocks/Ha grow on a 81-hectare vineyard, on a knoll composed of very fine gravel (called "Mindel"). Certified organic in 2016, La Lagune vineyard is made up of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%), and Petit Verdot (10%), with vines of about 35 years old that only produce Red Bordeaux.
Chateau La Lagune produces 3 wines: "Le Grand Vin de La Lagune", "Le Moulin de La Lagune", and finally, "Mademoiselle L" cuvee, since 2004. La Lagune's first wine is full-bodied, fleshy and opulent, displaying blackcurrant, black cherry and vanilla oak flavours. Recent vintages are more distinguished and present a beautiful finesse. This great wine will reach its best after 5 to 20 years in the cellar, and sometimes even 25 years for the greatest vintages like 1982, 1989 and 1990. Chateau La Lagune's second wine is made from the tanks that were not selected for their first wine. It's a less opulent wine. It's a wine to enjoy within 5 to 10 years. Finally, La Lagune's "Mademoiselle L" is made up of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (36%), and Petit Verdot (4%). This is a more accessible wine, which can be open after 2 to 5 years. La Lagune's best vintages are: 2015, 2014, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2005, 2000, 1990, 1989 , and 1982. Critics' reviews are generally good, especially for vintages prior to 1990. But La Lagune estate has been getting better since 2002, with high scores of 90 and 93/100 for their greatest vintages. Value for money is good with Lagune wines, and good vintages are to be bought whenever possible as they've got good ageing potential.
