    The 2022 La Lagune really takes a while to settle in the glass. It eventually sheds its veneer of oak to reveal attractive blackberry, sous-bois and pencil box aromas, and an exotic element loitering just off-stage. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannins that lacquer the mouth. Quite dense and muscular, yet it retains definition and plenty of freshness on the finish. It will require bottle age, but it should evolve into a fine La Lagune. Drink 2030-2060

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 93-95

    Reminding me, like the 2019, of a modern-day version of the lovely 1990, the 2022 La Lagune bursts with aromas of dark berries, cassis, licorice and violets. Medium to full-bodied, supple and fleshy, it's a broad, sensual wine with velvety tannins and a suave, charming profile. With 13.8% alcohol, it remains classically proportioned, with a rather high pH of over 3.8 likely contributing to its open, giving style this year.

    This under the radar Third Growth is now fully certified biodynamic and it shows in the quality of the grapes this year. A fruit-forward nose redolent of ripe blackcurrant and Morello cherries, mingles with aromatics of blackcurrant leaf, wood-spice and rain-on-slate minerality. A gently salinity propels the full-bodied palate forward through lashings of creamy blackcurrant and spiced vanilla, all supported by chewy, sandy yet ripe tannins. It finishes pretty and lifted.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 95-96

    This is long and fresh with a linear feeling to the rich fruit, showing plums, redcurrants and spices, with chocolate and walnuts. Medium to full body. Fine tannins. This is the first year being certified biodynamic by Biodyvin and furthermore, La Lagune is always excellent in hot years.

  • Jane Anson, April 2023, Score: 94

    Impressive La Lagune, with depth and reach, manages to deliver intense tannic architecture, with Left Bank power and concentrated cassis and bilberry fruits, with fresher pomegranate, citrus zest, mandarin oil, tobacco, cigar box all adding complexity. Supple tannins also, and plenty of them, with bitter almond notes adding focus on the finish. Ageing potential here, and an impressive vintage for the property. Harvest September 9 to 26. Owner Caroline Frey.

    One of the best Haut-Médoc out there, the 2022 Château La Lagune reveals a dense purple hue as well as a classic Médoc bouquet of blackcurrants, leafy herbs, fresh earth, and chocolate. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has a layered, concentrated mid-palate, ripe tannins, and a great finish. A stunning wine, it will have 30 years of longevity if properly stored.

    Château La Lagune (3ème Cru Ludon, Haut-Médoc) 52 Cabernet Sauvignon, 45 Merlot, 3 Petit Verdot There is stunning freshness and drive on the nose of this glorious wine, followed by a strict, linear and amazingly adroit palate. Superbly refined and beautifully delicate, these are not the hallmarks one might expect from a ‘hot vintage’! La Lagune is assembled from the ground up, built on high tensile minerality and adorned with layers of elegant, soothing fruit and hints of discreet spice. Superbly long and buoyant, this is the first vintage that is biodynamically certified for La Lagune, and this wine certainly seems to wear this prestigious badge with pride. While this is already a mesmerising wine, I sense that it will unravel slowly, relying on dynamic acidity and refreshing bitterness to provide a reservoir of energy that will propel it for decades.

Producer

Château La Lagune

One of the most popular wines during these campaigns - due to its excellent value. Unlike itsclassified companions, La Lagune is the only third growth that is not from a communal appellation.Comprised of very light sandy-gravelly soils, many believe its wines are similar to those of Pomerol or Graves.

Region

Haut-Médoc

The Haut-Médoc is an appellation within the Médoc that stretches along the left bank of the Gironde from Blanquefort in the south to the north of Bordeaux. The region encompasses the more famous communes of St-Estèphe, Pauillac, St-Julien and Margaux. Following the 1855 classification many of its most famous estates were classified and scored as first, second, third, fourth or fifth growths. This was based on their social and commercial positions at the time. Most of these classed growths use the village appellation name, such as Pauillac. However five of these classed growths fell outside a village appellation so take the name Haut-Médoc. Many of the vineyards which are classified as Haut-Médoc may actually also be referred to as Cru Bourgeois wines. These wines have lower permitted yields and so offer great value for money.
