Chateau Lagrange 2020

Product description

Grapes have been grown at Chateau Lagrange, St.-Julien, for over 600 years. Third Growth in the Classification of 1855, its vineyard stretches over two Gunzian gravel slopes where the highest point of Saint-Julien thrones on the beautiful estate. An uncompromising quest for excellence, such is the philosophy there. For several decades now the exceptional terroir has inspired a unique approach where precision and innovation are paramount. 

95+ Points - Jeb Dunnuck

It's a gorgeous, complete Saint-Julien offering remarkable purity in its cassis, violets, chocolate, and leafy tobacco-like aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, with terrific balance, a pure, focused mouthfeel, ripe tannins, and beautifully integrated oak, it's going to benefit from 4-6 years of bottle age and cruise over the following 2+ decades in cold cellar. 

94 Points - James Suckling

Attractive nose of blackberries, blackcurrants, walnuts, ink and kaffir leaves. It’s medium- to full-bodied, firm and structured, with chewy and tight tannins. Dark and intense, with a long and persistent finish. Turns to graphite and cedar.

93 Points - Decanter

A perky, bright and enjoyable Lagrange, showing some angularity and austerity to the tannins but at the same time it is bright with clarity of direction, firm and concentrated fruits and juicy on the finish. 

93 Points - Wilfred Wong

The 2020 Chateau Lagrange shows excellent elegance from start to finish. This wine shines with aromas and flavors of red and blackcurrants, chalky notes, and shading of oak. Try it with a lightly-spiced rotisserie chicken.
