Another great success from proprietress Caroline Frey, the 2010 La Lagune provides an essential drinking experience, with notes of Asian plum sauce, mulberries, kirsch liqueur and black currants. The wine also exhibits a savory, rich smokiness and subtle lead pencil shaving notes. Full-bodied and pure, combining both elegance and power, this is a brilliant, very approachable effort that should hit its stride in 5-7 years and last for at least two decades. Think of it as a hypothetical blend of the 2005 and 2009. Kudos! Wine Advocate.February, 2013

A blend of 55% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot, the La Lagune already has an expressive bouquet with ripe blackberry, bilberry, cedar and tobacco with good clarity and brightness. The palate is simple classic Cabernet with lovely, savoury-tinged black fruits, good acidity, very harmonious and natural towards the finish. Reserved but great length and persistency in the mouth, this is a great, great La Lagune. Tasted April 2011. Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

What a lovely texture to the wine, with super soft and supple tannins and blackberry and currant character. Round and juicy. One of the softest and most supple 2010s. It tastes more like a 2009 in style. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon , 40% Merlot, and 10% Petit Verdot. jamessuckling.com

This is tangy, with red currant, roasted mesquite, sanguine and tobacco notes. Already shows range and definition, with solid grip. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

One of the darkest purples I have seen. No different extraction policy this year and not picked especially late, I was told by the maître de chai. Lightly sweet and minerally on the nose. Easy and yet with odd suppleness. Sweet start. Then a bit turgid and heavy and tough on the end. MASSES of extract for a left-bank wine! Just a bit of a lack of freshness. Tastes pretty hot on the finish. Falls away. I am told it’s 13.9%. Tastes a bit more. jancisrobinson.com

Excellent concentration of ripe black fruits, spice and oak blended in, subtle and supple power and depth, great length and balance, a triumph, even better than 2009. Drink 2016-30. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com
