Chateau La Lagune - a brief history

Château La Lagune is a winery located in the Haut-Médoc region of Bordeaux, France.


The history of Château La Lagune dates back to the 17th century, making it one of the oldest wineries in the Haut-Médoc region. The winery takes its name from the lagoon that once surrounded the chateau, which was a source of irrigation for the vineyards.


Fun fact

In the late 19th century, Château La Lagune was one of the first wineries in the Haut-Médoc region to adopt the use of the then-new technique of malolactic fermentation, which greatly improved the quality and stability of the wines. During World War II, the chateau and its vineyards were used as a base by the German army, and the winery was nearly destroyed. After the war, the chateau was extensively renovated and modernized.


Over the years, Château La Lagune has become known for producing elegant and balanced red wines, made primarily from the Cabernet Sauvignon grape, as well as a small amount of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. In recent years, the winery has undergone a major renovation and expansion, including the construction of a new winemaking facility and the planting of additional vineyards.


Today, Château La Lagune is one of the leading producers in the Haut-Médoc region, and its wines are highly sought after by wine lovers and collectors around the world. The winery is known for its commitment to sustainable and environmentally friendly winemaking practices, and continues to produce wines of exceptional quality and character.
