75cl ALC 14%

Full of ripe jammy black fruit character with cloves and spices. This powerful wine has none of the harsh tannin that can be a feature of this vintage, just ripe fruit, spice and a lingering finish.

Château La Lagune

This is the most southerly class growth estate in the Médoc and one of the few not in one of the four famous communes.

Although it has a long history by 1958 the estate was on the verge of going out of existence until rescued by Georges Brunet who started the process of restoration. The estate passed to the Frey family in 2000 with Caroline Frey as winemaker who has continued the improvements and changed the style by reducing the amount of new oak used. The old barrels go to Jaboulet in the Rhône, which is now also owned by the Frey family. The wine is rich and substantial and ages well. The property achieved its organic certification from the 2016 vintage.

Vintage guide

Early reports suggest the 2022 vintage looks very promising indeed. The 2021 vintage has made wines that are medium bodied with good freshness, in a similar style to 2017. The 2020 vintage yielded wines that are aromatic and concentrated, quite big in structure with freshness and balance. The wines of 2019 are very concentrated, fresh, ripe and plentiful, all in all a very well-regarded vintage. 2018 was a very good vintage in the end but mildew, hail, and a heatwave all served to reduce yields. The harvest across the region took place in near ideal conditions. 2017 is good in terms of quality but short on quantity, following frosts in the Spring that decimated certain properties. 2016 is a worthy successor to 2015, on a par qualitatively and looking very promising across all wine types. A hot summer but with cool nights has produced wines with fruit and freshness. 2015 is exceptionally good across the region for reds, especially the Right Bank, Pessac-Léognan, dry whites (better for Sauvignon than Sémillon) and sweeties: it is certainly the best vintage since 2010. 2014 is a very good Cabernet vintage, particularly in the Médoc where the wines are fresh with fine tannins. Overall, ripeness levels are good and so are quantities. The 2013 and 2012 vintages were not particularly easy for the Bordelais, requiring dedication in the vineyard and modern techniques in the winery. Plenty of attractive short- and medium-term wines have been made, but yields are low.
