Chateau Lagrange 2008
|Région||Bordeaux, St. Julien|
|Raisin||Bordeaux Blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot|
The dark ruby/purple-hued 2008 reveals an angular, austere personality along with medium to full-bodied, deep, concentrated fruit. An unusually backward and highly tannic 2008, it will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring and should keep for 20 years. It is a very good wine, but it is not pleasant to drink at present.
Winespectator / James Suckling (91)
This dense red exhibits a tangy damson plum note that leads the way for iron and lilting black tea flavors, all followed by darker charcoal and fig character. There's a nice ying-yang of velvet and iron on the finish.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
