This blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot possesses some elevated tannin, but also an impressively saturated dark ruby/plum color, notes of vanillin, black currants and forest floor, and a medium-bodied, well-endowed personality. Cellar it for several more years and enjoy it over the following 10-15 years. It will not make anyone forget La Lagune’s 2009 or 2010, but it is a solid effort for the vintage.

The La Lagune was picked between 5th September with the Merlot and finished with the Cabernet on 28th, a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, yields at 31hl/ha. The nose demands patience: reticent at first but opening up nicely with clean, pure strawberry and raspberry aromas laced with subtle forest floor. The palate is medium-bodied with fine balanced on the entry, a little gritty and tarry in the mouth, but well defined all the way to the linear, quite precise finish. It is a “conservative” La Lagune, but is commendable for the vintage. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

On the crunchier side, with slightly snappy acidity and damson plum and currant fruit. Enough spice fills in on the finish to give it a full feel. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Dense colour, very pure blackcurrant fruit, lovely smoothness with a touch of dry spice, very well-made. Drink 2015-2025. Decanter.com
