Lagrange 2012


Dark ruby, dense core. Firm and balanced with blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and hints of citrus and minerals, pu, erh tea aroma. The easy palate of 2012, Lagrange left the Team with a significant impression. It has a core of ripe, generous black fruit from the riper Merlot with integrated tannins; this is a well-made, impressive wine and showed Chateau Lagrange’s capabilities in an otherwise average vintage(fruity and light). This neat and clean style, endowed by the current consultant Eric Boissenot, and the earlier consultant Emile Peynaud, Marcel Ducasse and Bruno Eynard, stands Lagrange out from other wines from the same St. Julien Appellation, such as Talbot, Beychevelle, St Pierre, Gloria, etc. Scores are impressively stable and hih: WE94, VertdeVin94, JS92, Tim Atkins 95. Harvest October 8 to 21, 35% 1st wine, 60% new oak. This bottle is from a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot and was picked relatively late for 2012—some complexities.
