Château Lagrange Saint-Julien 3ème Grand Cru Classé

Wine Description

(From 2010 Vintage) Great nose of blueberries, spices and hints of walnuts. Full body, with a lovely finish of well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. This is structured yet all in finesse.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2003 Vintage) In time, the vines planted in 1985 are now providing a choice in plot selection. Conventional tillage and handpicking are jealously maintained. More rigorous each year, the wine is surrounded resources and the most modern aids. Penetrates the grapes in a vat which allows perfect control of fermentations. Livestock cellars are fully air conditioned. Efforts now focus on the vine. The experience gained during 30 years of practice brings a mastery of soils and climatic constraints.

    (From 2006 Vintage) 66% Cabernet Sauvignon; 22% Merlot; 7% Petit Verdot. This somewhat sturdy and well-stuffed youngster starts out with complex aromas of cassis, stone and graphite and for a moment hints that it might be plush on the palate. It nonetheless turns out to be a bit little bit backward and a touch on the tough side, but it shows plenty of depth and promises good things with six to eight years of age.
