Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
75cl * 13.5% ABV * St Julien, Bordeaux, France
This 3rd Growth Chateau is the largest of all the classed growths with 117 hectares of vines. Top quality St Julien has been produced here since the late 1980’s when new investment meant that the wine making facilities could be modernised. This has lead to a number of exceptional vintages, that have arguably exceeded its 3rd Growth status.
Powerful, moreish and mouth-watering, with vibrant ripe black and red brambly fruits, toasted spicy oak, sweet tobacco and cloves. Well balanced tannins help to create a fantastic structure. The palate is forward, stylish and utterly charming, and the finish is long with plenty of depth.
Decant carefully and leave for 2-3 hours. Serve at 16 -18°C.
Enjoy now – 2035.
“A 2017 with serious depth of fruit and firm tannins. Solid center palate. Fresh and long finish” 93 points, James Suckling
"The 2017 Lagrange strides confidently out of the glass with notes of warm blackberries, black cherry compote and black currant jelly plus nuances of Indian spices, garrigue and lilacs. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly played with plush tannins and an impressive intensity of crunchy black fruits, finishing with great length and plenty of depth." 93 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate
