2010 Chateau La Lagune, 3rd Growth Haut Medoc (12 x Bottle)

France Bordeaux Haut Medoc

Another great success from proprietress Caroline Frey, the 2010 La Lagune provides an essential drinking experience, with notes of Asian plum sauce, mulberries, kirsch liqueur and black currants. The wine also exhibits a savory, rich smokiness and subtle lead pencil shaving notes. Full-bodied and pure, combining both elegance and power, this is a brilliant, very approachable effort that should hit its stride in 5-7 years and last for at least two decades. Think of it as a hypothetical blend of the 2005 and 2009. Kudos!

Vinous

The 2010 La Lagune has a vigorous bouquet with blackberry, briary and tobacco aromas, quite feisty compared to its peers, then settling down and manifesting more red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity. This builds nicely towards a cohesive, silky smooth finish with a pinch of white pepper on the aftertaste. Excellent. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal.

Vinous

The 2010 La Lagune has more clarity and delineation than the 2009 on the nose: intense blackberry, briary, crushed stone and a touch of graphite. These are the best aromatics on a La Lagune…so far. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and a keen line of acidity that combines to manifest a serious and complex La Lagune; sophisticated with layers of mineral-rich black fruit. I love the focus here and the way it just lingers in the mouth long after the wine has departed. It is certainly a long-term proposition and I would start broaching this from 2022 onwards. Tasted at the La Lagune vertical at the château.

Deep garnet in color, the 2010 la Lagune springs from the glass with scents of baked plums, boysenberries and dried mulberries plus touches of underbrush, damp soil and a medicinal waft. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a good amount of savory, muscular fruit with chewy tannins and an invigorating finish.
