EVIDENCE PAR CAROLINE 2010 - CHATEAU LA LAGUNE

A successful and precious alchemy between Bordeaux and the Rhône valley !
Caroline Frey, dynamic young owner and oenologist of Château La Lagune and  Paul Jaboulet estate is reviving the tradition of blending Bordeaux with Rhône.


Blend and vinification

50% Cabernet Sauvignon
50% Syrah

This wine is an inaugural vintage of a unique Blend between Bordeaux and the Rhône valley.
Caroline Frey constant travels between the Médoc and the Rhône valley, Château La Lagune and Domaines Paul Jaboulet Aîné, have awoken the desire to unite the two prestigious Houses in one wine. This wine is a blend of two grape varieties, as an evidence of Caroline's double loyalty.
From the Rhône terroir, where it was born, Caroline took the Syrah; from the Bordeaux terroir, where it grows like nowhere else, she took the Cabernet-Sauvignon.

By this blend, Cabernet Sauvignon has the properties of Syrah, which gives it more body and color. The grapes of both varieties used for this wine are fermented and aged separately in their region of origin for 12 months. Upon completion of this period, the two wines obtained are assembled to form only one. The blended wine is then aged  again in oak barrels for 18 months.

Tasting notes

Blending the grapes of the two vineyards has created a very intense and generous wine.

Strawberries, raspberries, the nose of this Côtes du Rhône is rich, fruity and spicy.
The mouth is round, soft, full with notes of blackcurrants, licorice and pepper.

Tasting advices

Uncork the wine at least one hour before serving at a temperature of 16° / 18°C

Ready to drink now or in a few years 

It  matches a rack of lamb and cheeses

Due to labeling laws, the Evidence wine will be sold as a generic Vin de France wine. Vin de France is the lowest level of classification in France. Wines sold under the designation of Vin de France do not list the region of origin or appellation for the vineyards, the vintage or the grape varieties. It is sold as simply a wine from France. This is the same designation for all the Bordeaux, Rhone blended wines that have been produced.
