2021 Château La Lagune En Primeur

Following on from the successful release of ‘Super-Second’ Château Leoville Las Cases this morning, the first full week of the 2021 campaign finishes with third growth Château La Lagune, from the southernmost part of the Médoc,  out at £315 per dozen bottles, a small reduction on the 2020 last year.

The 2021 is a delicious claret, ripe red and black fruit flavours, lovely freshness with medium-body and a very digestible 12.5% alcohol.  For us it exemplifies what this ‘classic’ vintage is all about.

The critics are very positive;  whilst James Lawther MW writing for Jancis Robinson finds it “pure and precise… with adequate mid-palate fruit and length on the finish. (Bravo!)”, Antonio Galloni at describes it as “..deep and beautifully layered in the glass, with striking layers of nuance…the 2021 is a knock-out.

Offered en primeur landing spring 2024.  Magnums available, other formats on request.
