The second wine of Château Lagrange was first produced in 1985. Sourced from 30 years old vines, it receives the same care as the Grand Vin, with a search for maturity and concentration in the vineyard, a plot vinification and ageing adapted to its tannic structure.
Medium bodied with plummy ripe red and black fruits and a touch of cedar oak. Full bodied and well structured with round tannins.
this has a very fine nose of blackberry, briary and a touch of black tea. Good definition and purity. The Petit Verdot add a little edginess to this wine that has fine tension if lacking a little length on the saturated, slightly chewy finish. Very good purity and precision though.- 90 pts Neal Martin, RobertParker.com
