Winemaker's Notes:

La Lagune wine posess elegance and balance, two features which typify the great Bordeaux wines. But added freshness, harmony, and a touch of femininity grant La Lagune true personality. An exceptional terroir, perfectly mature grapes, careful vinification, respectful aging - therein lies the secret of the La Lagune style.

Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot

About Chateau La Lagune:

Chateau La Lagune is located on the terrace of alluvial gravel bordering the river. The "Village de La Lagune" was a tenant farm in its place and gradually invested in transforming several modest leaseholds into a major winegrowing estate.

He was succeeded by numerous owners and the lovely chateau we know today was built between 1730 and 1734. In 1855, La Lagune joined the select club of grands crus classes as a third growth. The Seze family acquired La Lagune in 1886 and it stayed with them until 1956. They sold it to Georges Brunet, who gave an important new impetus to the estate before in turn selling it to the family who owned Champagne Ayala in 1964.

The Frey family arrived in 2000. They have made large-scale investments in the vineyard, cellars, and chateau aiming for excellence at all levels.
