2020 Bordeaux En Primeur Report

Episode 17 – La Lagune

2020 Château La Lagune, 3ème Cru Ludon, Haut-Médoc

65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot

50% new oak

14% alc

35 hL/ha

This is a stunning La Lagune with sensational energy, grandeur and poise.  The fruit is lusty, dark and resonant and the oak adds to this wine’s flair as opposed to masking its promise.  The finish is prodigious and the flavour barely falls away as it ticks along.  Fabulously classy and laser-sighted to this wine’s precise location, this is a must-buy in 2020, assuming that the pricing is fair.  It manages to sum up everything that I both like and respect about this historic property in just one glass.  18+/20
