2005 Château La Lagune, Cru Classé Haut-Médoc

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 176: This is the finest wine made at this estate since 1982, and possibly the greatest La Lagune of all time. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by an exquisite bouquet of spice box, incense, sweet unsmoked cigar tobacco, black cherry liqueur, forest floor, and subtle toasty oak. Reminiscent of a Cote de Nuits grand cru blended with a top-notch Bordeaux, this beauty possesses silky tannins, a broad, savory, expansive mouthfeel, and intrinsic precision as well as elegance. Moreover, this fabulous wine is a relative bargain for the vintage. Seamless and prodigious! 95 points.
