Château La Lagune is situated in Bordeaux, in the Haut-Médoc appellation. In the historic Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, Château La Lagune was classified as one of fourteen Troisièmes Crus (Third Growths). Château La Lagune had a spell of bad luck during the 1950s as it fell under economic pressure caused by the end of the war, followed by a terrible frost in 1956 that destroyed a large number of vineyards across Bordeaux. A man named George Brunette purchased the derelict château in 1958, at which point it only had 4 hectares of vineyard left. The vineyards were then replanted, however another economic hit not long after in 1961, meaning that George Brunette had to sell Château La Lagune to the Ducellier family (Champagne Ayala). Today the vineyards are planted with 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot and the château is owned and run by the Frey family, with Caroline Frey as the manager. The family also own an estate in Hermitage, Jaboulet and 45% holdings in Billecart-Salmon Champagne.
