    The 1990 La Lagune has a lovely bouquet with scents of melted red fruit, pressed roses and wild hedgerow. There is something almost Burgundy-like about the aromatics and unlike the 1982 and 1986 they blossom with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, good acidity, a pleasant fleshiness that segues into a ferrous and well-defined finish. A touch of spiciness develops yet it is the texture that really defines this La Lagune, its roundness and velvety sensation, the vintage indelibly marked upon this wine. One of the most enjoyable older vintages, it should continue to serve drinkers well over a number of years. Tasted at the La Lagune vertical at the château.

    Like so many 1990s, this wine appears to have put on more weight and added a dimension or two to its personality. The color is dense ruby, with no lightening at the edge. The sweet nose of grilled nuts, smoked herbs, sweet, lavishly ripe black currant fruit, and chocolate is followed by a gutsy, medium-bodied wine that is about as fleshy as La Lagune can be. While the wine does not have the intensity, fat, and power of the 1982 (the greatest La Lagune I have ever tasted), it is a gorgeously proportioned, velvety-textured, sweet and expansive wine that is already drinking well. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010.

Producer

Château La Lagune

One of the most popular wines during these campaigns - due to its excellent value. Unlike itsclassified companions, La Lagune is the only third growth that is not from a communal appellation.Comprised of very light sandy-gravelly soils, many believe its wines are similar to those of Pomerol or Graves.

Region

Haut-Médoc

The Haut-Médoc is an appellation within the Médoc that stretches along the left bank of the Gironde from Blanquefort in the south to the north of Bordeaux. The region encompasses the more famous communes of St-Estèphe, Pauillac, St-Julien and Margaux. Following the 1855 classification many of its most famous estates were classified and scored as first, second, third, fourth or fifth growths. This was based on their social and commercial positions at the time. Most of these classed growths use the village appellation name, such as Pauillac. However five of these classed growths fell outside a village appellation so take the name Haut-Médoc. Many of the vineyards which are classified as Haut-Médoc may actually also be referred to as Cru Bourgeois wines. These wines have lower permitted yields and so offer great value for money.
