"This is tangy, with red currant, roasted mesquite, sanguine and tobacco notes. Already shows range and definition, with solid grip." (WS)

"Is this 2005 deja vu “all over again”? Proprietress Caroline Frey has elevated the quality at La Lagune since acquiring this estate, and the 2010 is another superb effort as well as one of the better values in Bordeaux. An opaque purple color is followed by an extraordinary perfume of black raspberries, black currants, licorice and subtle smoke and graphite. While uber-concentrated, full-bodied and pure, it retains both elegance and precision as well as a sensational 45-second finish. The suppleness of the tannins and stunning opulence suggest it will drink beautifully for 25+ years." (WA)

"(a blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon, 40% merlot and 10% petit verdot; 13.8% alcohol) Bright dark red. Knockout nose combines raspberry, violet, spicy oak, minerals and dried herbs. Wonderfully tangy and delineated, with excellent thrust and concentration to its blackberry and sweet spice flavors. Still, this comes across as a bit youthfully closed and hiding as much as it's showing today. Finishes long and scented, with substantial but fine tannins. Combining finesse with power, this very impressive La Lagune ought to age very well, and my guess is that it will develop significant complexity." (IWC)

"What a lovely texture to the wine, with super soft and supple tannins and blackberry and currant character. Round and juicy. One of the softest and most supple 2010s. It tastes more like a 2009 in style. 50 percent Cabernet Sauvignon , 40 percent Merlot, and 10 percent Petit Verdot.$$" (JS)
