Peter Maude Fine Wines

2016, Château La Lagune, HAUT-MÉDOC, 3ème Grand Cru Classé


Bordeaux Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot.

At five years old, the tannins are still young and holding on tight, but the blackberry and cassis fruits have both juice and depth. This is a vintage where the phenolics are high, and there is an inky depth overall. Mint and cedar smoke on the finish, with clear energy underpinning the palate. This was the first certified organic vintage. Last tasted in 2018, just after bottling, and it is still a few years away from being ready to drink, but showing excellent development. Took the audience award in the masterclass, along with the 2000. 95 Jane Anson, Decanter.

Drinking Window: 2023 - 2042
