Chateau La Lagune
A Third Classed Growth (Troisieme Cru Classe), Chateau La Lagune has ridden the vicissitudes of fashion that have swept over the Medoc in the past 30 years. Now owned by the Frey family, La Lagune has seen a return to form, brought about by lower yields and better work in the vineyard. It is the southernmost classed growth in the Medoc and one of just five in the 1855 classification lying outside the main communes of St Estephe, St Julien, Pauillac and Margaux. The 80 hectares of vineyards are planted on gravel slopes with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot.
