    The 2016 la Lagune has a medium garnet-purple color and nose of intense cassis, warm cherries, redcurrants and spice box with earth and bay leaves in the undercurrent. The medium-bodied, earth-laced palate is plush and lively, finishing long.

    This is a great vintage for this terrific Haut-Médoc estate, and the 2016 Château La Lagune is well worth a case purchase. Complex notes of dark fruits, cedar, cigar tobacco, and hints of saddle leather all flow to a medium to full-bodied, perfectly balanced 2016 that has sweet tannins and a great finish. It will keep for 25-30 years.

    This is La Lagune's first certified organic vintage. It's considerably closed compared to when tasted at en primeur; still highly recommended but needs time in bottle. Tight cassis notes are joined by bilberry, black autumnal fruits and some tarry oak. It's a powerful wine with noticeable oak, extremely full tannins and earthy notes. A little raw at present, the high acidity gives a juicy impact. It's matured in 50% new oak, and fined but not filtered before bottling with minimal added SO2. Axel Vallet consults.
