Château la Lagune Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 2010
"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!" *-Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (94 Points)*

Editorial Reviews for Château la Lagune Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc
Smoky, oaky, and deeply aromatic showing some smoldering herbal and faint black currant complexity. Open on entry, and while not terribly complex, this is fresh and bright with gently austere tannins. Showing a bit of nuance on the backend, then finishing with great freshness and purity of fruit, this is lovely. Not an imposing wine but seductive. 90pts
Green tobacco, green peppercorn, fine oak, slightly jammy red currant/red raspberry fruit – smooth in the mouth but flat with a veneer of fruit over toasty oak, quite mocha/coffee toned, a bit hard and ungenerous (85-86)
Four and a half glasses
Dark fruit, pepper, clove, oak and smoke on the nose with robust blackberry, dark cherry, vanilla cream, black pepper and a hint of mint on the palate. The finish is sweetish and long. This needs to breath and was best after an hour or so in the decanter. This wine is well put together and is best with food but sipped well.
This is my go to everyday red. Consistant quality for a great price. Only problem is I am on the east coast and need to buy direct from the winery.
Smoky nose with hints of anise. Sweet currant and black fruit on the palate. Some of the anise from the nose too. A very strong effort from La Lagune.
Un nez profond de cassis avec une pointe rafraichissante de son bourgeon, des fragrances de cèdre, de tabac blond et un soupçon vanillé. Une bouche corpulente, emplissant le palais de rondeur mais qui garde une trame droite et dynamique lui donnant une belle allonge qui s'accompagne de saveur de fruit noir mûr presque compoté, de note de tabac, de vanille. Les tanins sont terriblement soyeux et parfaitement polis. La finale est longue, fraiche, avec une pointe d'amer éléguante, et persiste sur la mûre, le cassis, une pointe vanillée, le tabac, le cedre et un beau fûmé final. .

I experienced some sample variation with the 2011 La Lagune, but it appears to be outstanding, and one of the better efforts of the vintage. A dark plum/ruby/purple color is followed by aromas of dense, rich black raspberries, black currants, loamy s... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

2010: Is this 2005 deja vu "all over again"? Proprietress Caroline Frey has elevated the quality at La Lagune since acquiring this estate, and the 2010 is another superb effort as well as one of the better values in Bordeaux.

What a lovely texture to the wine with super soft and supple tannins and blackberry and currant character. Round and juicy. One of the softest and most supple 2010s. It tastes more like a 2009 in style. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon 40% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. James Suckling.
This is tangy with red currant roasted mesquite sanguine and tobacco notes. Already shows range and definition with solid grip. -J.M. Wine Spectator.
