Tasting Notes 

Chateau Lagrange is one of Saint-Julien's grandest chateaux. This Cabernet Sauvignon led blend shows ripe blueberry and blackcurrant flavours, with earthy aromas of leather and tobacco from ageing. It's smooth, yet intense on the palate with a great length.

 

Wine Advocate-Parker : 92/100
The 2014 Lagrange has indeed pulled its socks up, as I opined when I tasted the wine from barrel. Now in bottle, it has a conservative, tertiary nose with introverted black fruit mixed with cedar and sandalwood aromas. It feels tight at the moment but there is satisfying focus here. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin on the entry, though the Merlot component becomes more prominent towards the finish and offers a lovely fleshy, poised finish with a dab of black pepper on the aftertaste. Modest but stylish Lagrange, which is exactly what you expect.
