    Goedhuis, April 2001

    A delicious plump yet firmly structured wine, rich in soft fruit flavours. La Lagunealways offers very good value for money en primeur, and will make delightful mid termdrinking. April 2001

    Score: 86/100

    Tasted in Bordeaux from an ex-château bottle, the 2000 La Lagune has a ripe brambly red fruit, raspberry preserve and rose petal scented bouquet that is attractive, if not the most complex 2000 Claret you will find. The palate is medium-bodied with dry, slightly disjointed tannins and a rather hollow finish that lacks substance and length. You are left feeling shortchanged by this very average La Lagune. Tasted April 2015. Neal Martin Score 86/100 Drink Dates 2015 - 2023

    An uninspiring effort from one of my favorite estates, La Lagune's dark ruby-colored, elegant, medium-bodied 2000 reveals plenty of new oak, but lacks concentration, expansiveness, and persistence. It is a pretty wine, but short and insubstantial. Anticipated maturity: now-2011.

    Mid-crimson. Quite plummy. Relatively soft without the dry punchiness of some more successful 2000s. Bit disappointing. Drink 2006-2015

    Clive Coates, June 2001

    40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 10% Petit Verdot. 50% in grand vin. This is a return to the classic La Lagune of yesteryear. Medium weight. Good depth and grip. Plenty of reserve. Gently oaky. Very good tannins. Stylish. Fine, long, classy finish. Very good. From 2009.

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.
