Chateau La Lagune Haut-Medoc 2016 Organic 95pts
94-95 points James Suckling
This is wonderful and perhaps the best La Lagune since 1982. Full body, yet the texture is amazing giving it a plush, silky texture that makes it formed and beautiful. Thick and melting in the mouth. Lots of forest floor, tar and black currant character. Very persistent finish. Energy. From organically grown grapes.
93 points Decanter
Now certified organic, and converting to biodynamics from this year. It displays a confident weight to the damson fruits that are hugely elegant and well placed. A little closed when tasted on two occasions, and the high Petit Verdot content of this wine is no doubt contributing to its slight austerity at this stage, but it also brings that beautifully welcome whoosh of black fruit spicing. Very good quality, elegant and long-ageing, just a dash below the exceptional 2015.

Best Medoc I have had!
A lot of earthy, forest floor, red fruit, cherry, and some plum, very classic. Medium high acidity, medium body, medium high grips tannic, both red fruit and dark fruit, some herbs and leafy, long last, well structured. Need time to open up, very elegant.
