Vertical tastings offer a magnificent glimpse into the many facets of a wine’s personality and its many expressions over different weather conditions. It also offers a glimpse into the quality of the terroir and the site from which the grapes originate.
On September 28, 2020, I have the privilege of participating in a vertical “zoom tasting” and deep dive into Chateau La Lagune with Caroline Frey, winemaker, at her family’s Haut-Médoc third-growth estate.
Wines being tasted include
Chateau La Lagune 2015
Chateau La Lagune 2016
Chateau La Lagune 2017
Chateau La Lagune 2018 [100% Cabernet Sauvignon]
“Part 2” will include my tasting notes, the impact of vintage variations, particularly weather, and stylistic changes across vintages, along with personal quotes and my overall impression.
