2008 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
One of the most beautiful wines of the vintage, the dark ruby/purple-colored La Lagune exhibits sweet cassis, camphor, truffle and white chocolate notes presented in a dense, medium to full-bodied, silky textured personality. Filled with purity, finesse, elegance and authoritative flavor intensity, this 2008 is already drinkable and should continue to evolve for 15+ years.
Deep ruby-purple. Impressively deep aromas of ripe blackcurrant, balsamic plum and violet soar from the glass, with a strong petit verdot note of violet. Rich blackberry syrup and black cherry flavors display laser-like precision thanks to refreshingly firm acids. Finishes long, with already smooth tannins conveying an impression of volume and flesh.
