Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Petit Verdot blend * 75cl * 13.5% ABV * Bordeaux, France
Ripe and balanced with acidity and fruit as prominent as the tannins, meaning that this will develop into a beautifully balanced wine. Rumoured to be as good if not better than the 2005 vintage - making this surely one of the top wines of the vintage. Drinking dates: 2028-2045.
The 2016 Lagrange (Saint Julien) is soft, pliant and inviting. A gracious midweight Saint-Julien, the 2016 is impeccably balanced. It is also one of the more sensual, graceful wines readers will taste in this appellation. Soft contours, pliant fruit and silky tannins add to that impression. Sweet tobacco, herbs, crushed flowers and dried cherries are all laced into the expressive finish. Score 90/93 Derek Smedley MW, April 2017
