Château La Lagune, 3ème Cru Classé, Haut Médoc, 2010

  Château La Lagune

This is frequently the most impressive wine from the Haut Medoc. Made in a real no-holds-bar, appeal to Bob Parker style; it is big, bold and brash. Liquid minerals, cut flowers and black fruits on the nose. On the palate one is impressed by the intensity of fruit. Really polished, packed with cassis, compote fruit and spice. The tannins are big and ripe and one is left with long flavours of black cherry and dark chocolate.

Contains Sulphites.

Grape Blend: Cab. Sauvignon | Merlot | Cab. Franc

The hallowed Bordeaux trinity of grape varieties that form the stock left bank blend. Cabernet's Sauvignon's acidic, tannic complex qualities marry ideally with Merlot's sweet, softy flesh characteristics, and Cabernet Franc's finesse and freshness. This classic combination has worked so successfully in Bordeaux that it is now mirrored the world over, particularly in warm sunny climates such as the Languedoc, Tuscany, South Africa, Australia and Napa Valley.
