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Then, from halfway across the world, Japanese liquor conglomerate Suntory swept away the rust--literally replacing the outdated cellar and replanting the vineyard--and got Chateau Lagrange back on its feet.
88-91 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012
Ruby purple. Flinty blackberry, herbs and cocoa on the deep nose. Rich and juicy, with very lively black fruit, vanilla and sweet spice flavors carrying through to the long, polished finish. Solid juicy acidity noticeably extends the black fruit flavors at the back.
