"Reminiscent of a premier cru from Beaune, the 2001 La Lagune reveals aromas of sweet and sour cherries, cedar, and balsam wood with toasty oak in the background. Medium-bodied, elegant, and refreshing, it should be enjoyed over the next 5-7 years. This is the first vintage for one of Bordeaux’s bright young oenologists, Caroline Frey."

"A lighter-styled wine lacking the concentration and depth one expects of a classified growth, the 2001 shows plenty of toasty oak in the nose along with sweet and sour cherries and red currants. The wine is tart, tangy, medium-bodied, but short. Anticipated maturity: now-2012."

"April 2003: a high-toned blackcurrant, tarry, liquorice nose - quite lifted. The palate is firm but elegant with well-integrated oak and good concentration. Quite feminine and delicate for Lagune, though lacks some depth on the finish. Then in November 2003: a lighter nose this time, liquorice with more cranberry fruits in evidence. Palate has good concentration with sweet cherry and rather low acidity. Harmonious, still difficult to tell how this will develop but very good. (No tasting note was provided in Issue 140. We have instead included the text of the tasting note from the 2002 Neal Martin’s Wine Journal)"
