2020 Chateau La Lagune Haut-Medoc
Wine Enthusiast - "A generous, richly textured wine, this has density as well as layers of black currant fruits. Its power does not detract from its style and swagger—a wine that will develop well. Barrel Sample: 93-95"
James Suckling - "A firm, polished red with tight, focused tannins that flow across the palate. It’s medium-to full-bodied with good length and a gorgeous finish. From organically grown grapes. Barrel Sample: 93-94"
Decanter - "This comes in strong with both grip and attitude. Some austerity that shows through in the abundant tannic frame, but there is a juiciness that runs through the palate, a sense that it is light on its feet. Liquorice, black chocolate and a spiced tomato leaf adds layers, but things close down on the finish. Barrel Sample: 92-94"
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2020 La Lagune has turned out beautifully, offering up aromas of cassis, dark berries, loamy soil and sweet spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, velvety, layered palate that exhibits excellent depth and concentration structured around powdery tannins, concluding with a perfumed, violet-inflected finish. This is a strong effort and a worthy, somewhat more muscular follow-up to the sensual, charming 2019. Best after 2025."
Jeb Dunnuck - "Smoky black fruits, tobacco, gravelly earth, and spicy oak all emerge from the 2020 Chateau La Lagune, one of the most concentrated, structured Haut-Medocs out there. Medium-bodied on the palate, it has terrific overall balance, building tannins, and a great finish. It needs to be forgotten for 4-5 years and will evolve for two decades or more if well-stored. Best After 2027."
