Château La Lagune, Haut-Médoc 1996

La Lagune 1996 - First
Full color but now showing signs of early maturity.  Ripe, relaxed, oaky nose.  Very classically styled Bordeaux palate of smoky black fruit: blackcurrant, blackberry and blackcherry with a touch of toffee and cream.  Well made.  Very good balance as usual.  A laid back wine.  But a bit more forward than the best Lagunes, particularly from the ’80s.  Ready (the French say ‘à point’).  I would have these drunk up over the next five years.  Good.  Now – 2016.
