2005 chateau la lagune 3eme cru classe, haut-medoc
Why We're Buying
At Château La Lagune, they believe Mother Nature makes the best wine. The wine estate uses organic and biodynamic agriculture to preserve the terroir while extracting the maximum complexity and finesse out of the fruit. The result: one of the most investment-worthy wines from the Haut-Médoc appellation.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A final blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot from the Frey family, the 2005 is a gorgeous La Lagune, and one of the first great ones under the Frey administration. This wine has a dense ruby/purple color, a beautiful nose of sandalwood, black raspberries, and cassis, silky sweet tannin, medium to full body, and a textured, long, pure mouthfeel and finish. This wine is probably 3-4 years away from prime-time drinking, but it should evolve gorgeously for another 20-25 years.
