This Haut-Medoc Château La Lagune offers a garnet-tinted red colour. It bears a fresh nose of ripe fruits. The attack is elegant and this 1996 La Lagune has a great rich and harmonious density. The tannic finish proves that this wine is a real Haut-Medoc. It can be paired with a sea lamprey, a traditional dish of Bordeaux.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This is a tannic, austere 1996, but it is well-endowed. Copious aromas of spicy new oak are present in the moderately intense bouquet, as well as cherry notes intertwined with dried herbs. The wine is medium-bodied and well-made, with good spice, a slight austerity, and moderate tannin in the long finish. In many vintages La Lagune can be drunk at an early age, but this effort will require 5-6 years of patience. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2018.
