From an assemblage of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 15% Petit Verdot, this sweet, sexy, silky, lush wine delivers floral, spice fresh plum, vanilla, earth with blackberry aromas. Rich, sensuous and pure, the wine is at the level of quality produced in 2005 as well as 1982. This attention grabbing wine is one of the better values from the Left Bank this year.
Chateau La Lagune dates all the way back to the 16th century under King Henri IV. This was at the same time that the Dutch engineers began the modern age for Bordeaux wines when they started draining the water from the marshes and swamps in Bordeaux. By that time, there were several Bordeaux vineyards in the Medoc that were planting vines and producing Bordeaux wine.
