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Then, from halfway across the world, Japanese liquor conglomerate Suntory swept away the rust--literally replacing the outdated cellar and replanting the vineyard--and got Chateau Lagrange back on its feet.

Purple-tinged ruby. Expressive aromas of redcurrant, black cherry, violet, graphite and spice. Lovely texture and vinosity to the saline, soil-driven dark berry and mineral flavors. Conveys a tactile impression of freshness and very precise extraction, finishing with good sappy intensity. Although this Saint-Julien could use a little more fruit concentration, it really is a lovely, balanced wine. A very good Lagrange in a difficult year.
