Château La Lagune 2014

SKU:1056/14 Bordeaux - Haut-Medoc - Red - 13.5° - More Info
  • Parker/WA : 91-93

The harvests started on September 22nd (young plots of Merlot) and ended on October 13th, after wonderful Petit Verdot and sumptuous Cabernet Sauvignon were picked. The fermentations in vat-room already foreshadowed good promises (according to the must aromatic intensity and the first phenolic analysis). The 2014 La Lagune is a pleasant, pure, and very expressive Haut-Medoc on black fruits that carries a great freshness and olfactory depth. On the palate, the wine offers a full body (enjoyable and creamy tannins with a fine and lingering mouthfeel). One can appreciate the spicy character of the wine in retro-olfaction, until finish. This Château La Lagune has character and a good ageing potential. 



Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Château La Lagune 2014 was picked between 22 September is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot with the young plots of Merlot and finishing with the Petit Verdot on 7 October. Proprietor Caroline Fray explained that there is a higher percentage of Cabernet because the Merlot suffered a lot of coulure. They have also replanted some Cabernet on the top of the hill, and these are now ready to go into the Grand Vin (there will probably be a higher level of Cabernet Sauvignon from now on.) It has well-defined bouquet, a little broody at first, but opening with chalky scents, tobacco and a touch of graphite, the higher percentage of Cabernet lending it a Pauillac like personality. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, quite citric acidity but supported by adequate black fruit. This is a classic La Lagune that I think will fill out with barrel maturation (50% new) and turn into a mighty fine La Lagune that will settle at the top of my banded score.
