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. Then, from halfway across the world, Japanese liquor conglomerate Suntory swept away the rust--literally replacing the outdated cellar and replanting the vineyard--and got Chateau Lagrange back on its feet.

90(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2004

Good ruby-red, considerably less saturated than the 2000. Sexy, sweet aromas of black plum, black raspberry and flowers; smells more like merlot, while the 2000 is more cabernet. Juicy and suave in the mouth, with subtle but intense flavors nicely firmed by juicy acids. Classy, impeccably balanced wine with very fine-grained tannins. While this is not at all hard today, it really should be given ten years in the cellar.
