2001 Chateau La Lagune Haut-Medoc

Winemaker's Notes

Full, rich color, rather tanky nose, touch of reduction, but very good cassis fruit behind it. Rich and ripe and almost sweet concentration on palate, plummy and smokey, quite exotic, soft tannins, good plummy fruit, for the medium term.

    (From 2000 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Evocative sweet berry fruit and complementary oak. Luscious with density and depth. Finely coated tannins with a fine future ahead. Drink 5-10+ years.

  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 2006 Vintage) 60% Cabernet Sauvignon; 30% Merlot; 10% Petit Verdot. Subtle suggestions of dried herbs and a bit of woodsy spice serve as accents to deep, well-ripened, curranty fruit in this comparatively supple and easy-to-taste effort. It is nicely balanced if nominally coarse, and, while sufficiently tannic to grow for a number of years, it offers a good deal to like even now.
