Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 89

This backward, tannic, strikingly oaky St.-Julien reveals a big structure as well as copious power and muscle, and a modern-styled combination of ripe fruit and new oak. While it requires a few years of bottle age to shed its cloak of tannin, and develop more Bordelais character, it possesses plenty of stuffing, and may turn out to be outstanding with additional time in bottle. Patience is warranted.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 89

Aromas of blackberry and cherry follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Balanced and refined. 25,000 cases made.

Plenty of tannins with some soft fruit behind it, hopefully the tannins will die down and the fruit remain.

About This Producer

Believed to have once been home to an order of the Knights Templar in the 14th century, the Bordeaux chateau was acquired by Baron de Brane, of Mouton and Brane-Cantenac fame, before being turned over in the late 18th century to Napoleon's finance minister, who significantly expanded the vineyard. However, it wasn't until a century later that Lagrange wines achieved superior quality. The Cendoya family, who had owned the estate since 1925, sold it off to the Japanese wine and spirits conglomerate Suntory. Under government recommendation, Suntory spent $4 million on renovations ($10 million to date) under the supervision of winemaker Marcel Ducasse, former apprentice to Professor Peynaud.

The estate's second wine is called Les Fiefs de Lagrange.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend

Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
