Chateau Lagrange 2001
|Région||Bordeaux, St. Julien|
|Raisin||Bordeaux Blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot|
A deep ruby/purple color is followed by classic notes of black currants, cedar, tobacco leaf, and spice box. Displaying better integration of new oak as well as more elegance and finesse than usual (Lagrange tends to be blatantly oaky in many vintages), it possesses sweet fruit, pretty flavors, and a clean, supple-textured finish.
Winespectator / James Suckling (90)
Lots of floral, berry and raspberry character on the nose. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a fresh finish. Lovely wine. Round and refined.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
