Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot
75cl * 13.5% ABV * Haut-Medoc, Bordeaux
An essential drinking experience for any fans of mature classified growth Bordeaux. This being a third cru classe, La Lagune produces some of the finest wines in the Medoc. The 2012 is drinking perfectly right now and will continue to develop in bottle.
Black fruits, black pepper, plum, tobacco and some leathery, earthy notes in the glass. The tannins are developed and fairly well softened now, although the bottle would still appreciate an hour's breathing time after opening.
Serve with classic cuts of red meat, especially lamb with dauphinoise potatoes and steamed vegetables. It has all the right characteristics to pair well with garlic and herby accompaniments too.
