This wine continues to get better and better, yet is still not close to full maturity, despite what I would have thought 16 years ago. The wine has a dense, dark plum/ruby color with just a bit of lightening at the edge. A sweet nose of black cherries intermixed with balsam wood, vanilla, and Provencal herbs has an almost Rhone-like character to it. The wine is medium to full-bodied, rich, with a lot of flesh, light to moderate tannin, and great balance and purity. This wine has approached its plateau of drinking. It should hold for at least another 10-15 years. Very impressive! Anticipated maturity: Now-2015. Last tasted, 12/02.

Tasting note


The 1985 Chateau La Lagune is a testament to the timeless elegance of Haut-Medoc wines. With a dense, dark plum/ruby hue and a hint of lightening at the edge, this wine exudes a sweet nose of black cherries, balsam wood, vanilla, and Provencal herbs, reminiscent of the Rhone valley. On the palate, it is medium to full-bodied, rich, and fleshy, with light to moderate tannin, and an exceptional balance and purity. Approaching its plateau of maturity, it promises to delight for another decade or more. Decant for an hour to unveil its full spectrum of flavors, and pair with robust dishes like roasted lamb or grilled steak for an unforgettable dining experience.
