Chateau Lagrange 2021
Ready, but will keep

Top quality Saint Julien has been produced here since the late 1980's when it was bought by the Suntory group of Japan. Located to the west of the Saint-Julien appellation, near Beychevelle. Its vineyard covers an area of 125.5 hectares and is composed of two hilltops of sandy gravel and ferruginous clay. Most of the vineyard benefits from a red grape variety dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), supplemented by Merlot (28%) and a few vines of Petit Verdot (7%).

The 2021 Château Lagrange is certainly a success in the vintage. This wine often presents aromas of blackcurrant and black cherry with spicy, smoky notes. Aromas of cedar, liquorice or tobacco also develop over the years, typical of the top Saint-Julien wines. The attack is supple and fleshy. With 84% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend, the tannic structure is powerful yet elegant. The harmony that reigns throughout promises a large drinking window. It should keep for two decades or more.

We recently had the opportunity to visit Lagrange and were thoroughly impressed with their consistent quality even in 'lesser years' such as the 2017 vintage.

The Jane Anson states that this vintage should offer 'huge amounts of pleasure'
