About Chateau Lagrange

It was 1983 and Chateau Lagrange had been in a rut for a half century. Vintage after vintage had been smashed by critics, prices were falling, and its Third Growth status was nowhere to be seen.

Expert Reviews

89 Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2004

Good bright medium ruby. Full-blown, expressive nose combines spiced black plum and strong torrefaction notes of smoke, coffee and mocha. Offers lovely freshness in the mouth, with flavors of dark berries and flowers enlivened by juicy acidity. Easy to drink now owing to its fine tannins, but this attractive midweight should offer another eight to ten years of pleasure. "More fruity and estery than the '97, which is a bit more classical," opines Ducasse. This wine includes a relatively high 17% petit verdot.
