This Château La Lagune Haut-Medoc displays a purple-tinted dark colour. Its nose is intense on liquorice, and its palate is broad on the attack with a dense and generous texture. This 2005 La Lagune possesses the elegance of its terroir combined with the generosity of well ripened grapes. It is seducing, fleshy and offers a spicy and lingering finish. It goes wonderfully with a roast beef with a crust and some ceps.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
