Something about Lagrange
The history of Chateau Lagrange dates to 1796 when Napoleon’s finance minister to Spain acquired the estate. Classified as a Third Growth in 1855, Chateau Lagrange extends over 117 hectares of gravel rises in the appellation of Saint Julien in the Medoc region. The estate’s vineyards are managed plot by plot and are planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. Chateau Lagrange also practices plot by plot vinification in order to perfectly express the terroir and fine tune the blend.

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Lagrange gives up fragrant notes of chocolate-covered cherries, cassis and blackberry pie with touches of violets, forest floor, truffles and cigar box. Medium-bodied with plenty of intense black fruit and firm, grainy tannins, it has a racy line and long, mineral-laced finish. 2019 - 2040
The 2015 Lagrange was picked from 21 September until 12 October. This has improved since its last showing a few months ago. The nose still needs more vigour, but the palate is fleshy and velvety in texture with superb harmony on the finish. It continues to meliorate so afford this young Lagrange another three or four years in bottle. Tasted at the Lagrange vertical at the estate. Drink 2024-2044.
The 2015 Lagrange is terrific. A rush of red plum, blood orange, menthol and pomegranate flesh out in a bold, succulent Saint-Julien that has really come together nicely since I first tasted it. During the en primeur tastings, Lagrange and Fiefs were not all that different. Aging, and perhaps further selection, has addressed that nicely. This exotically ripe, racy Saint-Julien will drink well for the next 15-20 years or more. 2020 - 2035
Tasted blind. Not the freshest nose but dense and concentrated with mases of ripe tannin and some pretty dry (not sweet) fruit. Slightly drying finish. Drink 2025-2040
