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Then, from halfway across the world, Japanese liquor conglomerate Suntory swept away the rust--literally replacing the outdated cellar and replanting the vineyard--and got Chateau Lagrange back on its feet.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 - July/August 2010
($38-$55) Bright ruby-red. Currant, menthol and minerals on the sexy nose, complemented by a subtle note of candied rose. Juicy, high-pitched and sharply delineated, showing lovely purity and intensity of flavor and very good spicy thrust. The rising finish hints at dried rose. This classically dry midweight is built to age, and should really be laid down for a good seven or eight years.
