A final blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot from the Frey family, the 2005 is a gorgeous La Lagune, and one of the first great ones under the Frey administration. This wine has a dense ruby/purple color, a beautiful nose of sandalwood, black raspberries, and cassis, silky sweet tannin, medium to full body, and a textured, long, pure mouthfeel and finish. This wine is probably 3-4 years away from prime-time drinking, but it should evolve gorgeously for another 20-25 years. Drink 2018 - 2044.
The Château La Lagune 2005 has a strict and focused bouquet with brambly black fruit, pencil shaving and plenty of sous bois aromas that are well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, foursquare in style but with impressive weight. There is a strong graphite element towards the finish that feels persistent in the mouth. Give this classy La Lagune a couple more years in bottle and give it respect. Drink 2018 - 2035
Tasted blind. Towards brettiness on the nose. Thick and bloody. No subtlety!
