Fabulous aromas of licorice, flowers and blackcurrants follow through to a full body with wonderful silky and caressing tannins and a long, flavorful finish. It’s complex and exceptional.
The greater power and intensity that comes from the 2009 vintage is hugely seductive, lending an extra dimension to a wine that feels similar in shape and feel to the brilliant 2005. Again, it's the brambly blackberry fruits that are so striking, and the unfussy way that it builds through the palate and hangs on. (JA)
The 2009 La Lagune was showing some reduction on the nose but it eventually blows off and so decant this for one to two hours if opening soon. It has a powerful nose with plenty of ripe red and black fruit with maybe just a hint of over-maturity when compared to the 2010 La Lagune. There is something a little feral here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, tons of quite spiced black fruit laced with bay leaf, black tea and a pinch of white pepper. It leads to a grippy and nicely structured finish that lingers long in the mouth. (NM)
Medium to deep garnet colored, the 2009 la Lagune opens with an earthy, Band-Aid and menthol-laced nose with a core of crème de cassis, plum preserves and Provence herbs plus a waft of tree bark. Medium to full-bodied, firm and chewy, with a pleasant earth-laced palate, it has appealing layers and harmony, if it tails off just a little rustic. (LPB)
Blackish-purplish crimson. Heady with a hint of sweet oak. Proper savoury left-bank claret with an overlay of the ripeness of the vintage. This tastes almost like Pichon Lalande! Very well made. Long. 17/20 points (JR)
