Château Lagrange 2011 - Saint-Julien 3rd Grand Cru Classé

Château Lagrange 2011 is more about subtlety than power. Nose is elegant with notes of cedar and blackberry. On the palate, wine is delicate with aromas of dark fruit and silky tannins. Finish is long with notes of wood, sweet spices and cocoa. Just entering its drinking window. it is a really nice bottle, complex as it should and very Saint-Julien in style. Never disappointed with Lagrange!

What experts say    
   
16.5/20 "Good depth of blackcurrant fruit, quite open style, but will gain complexity. Drink 2015-2024."
   
    94/100 "Barrel sample. Smoky aromas and new-wood flavors mark this wine. It has weight, as well as a concentrated core of tannins; and it shows long-term aging potential."    
    16.5/20 "Less expressive than the Gruaud just tasted but some notes of woody cedar and cassis leaf. Peppery, marked cedar on the palate. Fresh, bright and lively. Not especially long but the freshness persists and fine tannins are starting to soften. (JH)"    
    16.5/20    
    1* Very well made wine    
    17/20    
    93/100
