Château la Lagune Mademoiselle L Rouge Haut-Médoc Aoc 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Château La Lagune has ridden the vicissitudes of fashion that have swept over the Medoc in the past 30 years. Now owned by the Frey family, La Lagune has seen a return to form, brought about by lower yields and better work in the vineyard. It is the southernmost classed growth of all the Médoc and one of just five classed in the 1855 classification lying outside the main communes of St Estèphe, St Julien, Pauillac and Margaux. The estate covers 80 hectares of vineyard planted on gravel slopes of which the best face North/South. The well-draining gravel comprises small white pebbles brought by the Garonne river during the Tertiary era. The vineyards are planted with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. The mitigating effect of the Gironde estuary and the Atlantic mean the climate is mild and not too rainy. Mademoiselle L is made from young, Cabernet and Merlot vines. It has good depth of red-black colour with attractive perfumes of red and blackcurrant and an earthy, leathery note. On the palate, the intense cassis character of the Cabernet is fleshed out by the ripe, plummy Merlot which pads out the structure and gives a sweet fruit to the finish.
