ABOUT THE WINE
Chateau La Lagune and its 71.23 hectares of vineyard are located in the north of the Haut-Medoc appellation, in the commune of Ludon-Medoc. Chateau La Lagune's history can be dated back to the 16th when the vines were planted. However, it was not until 1730 that its winegrowing activity began. In 1957, Georges Brunet, a real estate entrepreneur and agricultural engineer took over the property and completely revolutionized the chateau and rebuilt the estate. He replanted the vineyard and expanded the estate. In 1964, Jeanne Boyrie became the first female estate-manager. She is renowned as one of the most conscientious, meticulous and able managers in Bordeaux. Following her death in 1986, her daughter Caroline Desverges took over. In 2000, Chateau La Lagune became the property of the Frey family.

TASTING NOTES
Its glorious 2005 has soft, sweet, ripe blackcurrant and black cherry fruit which blossoms within a lovely fragrant Margaux-style freshness and racy acidity. With lovely concentration, elegance and poise this should be a terrific bargain and looks sure to rival, if not surpass, their fabulous 1982.

FOOD PAIRING
We love this paired with some wine braised red meat or with aged cheese.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
This is the finest wine made at this estate since 1982, and possibly the greatest La Lagune of all time.
