How to serve
Although most of those estates ranked in the 1855 classification lie within the famous communes of St Estèphe, St Julien, Pauillac and Margaux, there are five (discounting the obvious exception of Haut-Brion) that do not. Perhaps most notable of these is La Lagune, the highest ranked of the handful, and the southernmost classed growth estate of all the Médoc. Driving north from Bordeaux through the Médoc, along the D2, La Lagune is the first estate that you meet, and for this reason it is sometimes light-heartedly referred to as the premier grand cru of the region. Neither this estate's location nor its epithet should, however, distract Bordeaux savants from the true worth of this estate; here is a very good source of wines indeed.More about the Winery
Reviews of Château La Lagune 2011
At sight, it offered an intense cherry colour. You can appreciate the tobacco smell. A soft, fresh wine.
This wine wasn't good enough for our dinner.
It is always good to share wine, but this is especial.
This Cabernet Franc is very pleasing to the eye. Delicious aromas of licorice and mint. Very long aftertaste.
