Château La Lagune, 3ème cru classé 2009

RRP £55

La Lagune is the Bordeaux outpost of the prolific Caroline Frey, who also makes wine in the Rhône (at Jaboulet), Burgundy, and now Switzerland. This 2009 has breed, tone, and raciness on the nose. There’s the tiniest hint of reduction before the rich, ripe, generous dark fruit overflows onto the palate. I love the balance, immediacy, and resonance of this wine. It is above all classy.
