TASTING NOTES

"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's Wine Advocate #205

"The 2010 La Lagune has more clarity and delineation than the 2009 on the nose: intense blackberry, briary, crushed stone and a touch of graphite. These are the best aromatics on a La Lagune…so far. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and a keen line of acidity that combines to manifest a serious and complex La Lagune; sophisticated with layers of mineral-rich black fruit. I love the focus here and the way it just lingers in the mouth long after the wine has departed. It is certainly a long-term proposition and I would start broaching this from 2022 onwards. Tasted at the La Lagune vertical at the château." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"Bright ruby-red. Very ripe aromas of raspberry syrup, kirsch, dried flowers and cedary, nutty oak. Large-scaled, plush and deep, conveying superb velvety richness of texture without obvious heaviness. This opulent wine finishes with big, sweet tannins, a note of chocolate, and lively notes of mint and herbs. Fat, sexy and flamboyant." Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com
