A popular classed growth (3rd) of 90 hectares, situated south of Margaux near Cantemerle. 2023 is 65% cabernet sauvignon and 35% merlot.  

A subtle yet plush La Lagune with black olives, blackberries and hints of chocolate and hazelnut. Medium body with fine, polished tannins and a savoury finish. There's a crunchy feel to it and it's layered and deep at the end.
94-95 James Suckling.

Concentrated spiced plum, billowing red and white roses fragrance, opening to a confident tannic architecture, and an expansive but controlled delivery of textured autumnal fruit. Rose stems and grippy tannnins suggest full ripeness was challenging, but this has character and depth, and lift through the palate. Caroline Frey owner.
93 Jane Anson.

The 2023 La Lagune is a serious wine, but it is also quite backward. Dark red cherry, plum, spice, leather and dried herbs open with some coaxing. The 2023 is going to need time to come together. Its aromatic intensity and overall persistence suggest it has a bright future.
92-94 Antonio Galloni, Vinous.
