Château La Lagune 1986 - Haut-Médoc
Located a few kilometers south of the Margaux appellation, Château La Lagune is one of, if not the Haut-Medoc, the most famous. Known for its power and great aging potential, it is easy to confuse it with a cru from Marseille (Lascombes or Giscours for example).
This 3rd classified growth of 1855 which extends over more than 80 hectares benefits from a long aging of 18 months of which 55% of new wood.
If you are looking for a classic Bordeaux style at a good price / pleasure ratio, this is the wine for you.
The 1986 vintage is one of the most successful in the area. The perfect maturity of the Cabernets perfectly suited the know-how of the house, which was able to vinify it in its classic style "of tannin, wood, time". 30 years later, it is finally ready to drink but still has aging potential!
Be careful, at least an hour decanting or a passage in a carafe is necessary to give it time to open.
