Default TN Ch. La Lagune 1966

Chateau La Lagune is in the Haut-Medoc between the south end of Margaux
and the city of Bordeaux. The bottle I opened was in excellent condition
and had been properly stored.

The color is still fairly deep with only a moderate amount of age
apparent around the rim. The bouquet is still intense with cassis and
some herbal notes. There is a quite noticable bell pepper note that I
more often associate with certain young California Cabernets than with
well-aged Bordeaux. There is ample acid. The tannins are resolved and a
bit on the dry side as in many others from this vintage. This wine has
held up better than many others from 66. In fact, it was in better shape
than a 66 Lafite I tasted a few months ago. This is a classic style of
Bordeux that probably would be liked better by Broadbent than by
Parker.
