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Then, from halfway across the world, Japanese liquor conglomerate Suntory swept away the rust--literally replacing the outdated cellar and replanting the vineyard--and got Chateau Lagrange back on its feet.

93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2004

(the blend features just 44% cabernet sauvignon, with 44% merlot and 12% petit verdot; this is the first vintage to include petit verdot) Good deep, full ruby. Explosive, rather wild aromas of dark fruits, leather, animal fur and chocolate. Fat, lush and silky, with a seamless texture and a deep sweetness. This offers terrific volume and finishes very smooth and very long, with utterly suave tannins, notes of leather and game, and a suggestion of surmaturite According to Ducasse, 1990 witnessed cooler September nights than '89 and thus offered "better conditions for producing great wine. " A superb showing.

Twenty years on Chateau Lagrange
07/10/2010
by Winedoctor
This is a wine I bought and kept in cellar since release. Opened and consumed tonight, it is in top shape. Nose in Riedel Sommelier glass, is perfect, with cedar and spices, dark cherries, nothing out of place or off. The palate is full and rich, with a wonderful finish lasting almost a minute. Wish I could climb in the glass and swim in it. I love this wine!!
