PRODUCT REVIEWS

Château Lagrange is one of Saint-Julien's grandest châteaux and one whose 2020 is backed by some very attractive reviews. Both Wine Advocate and Vinous have awarded deservedly high scores with Neal Martin claiming the château will challenge the best 2020s from the appellation.

Quality, as you are I am sure starting to gather, is particularly high this year, however the flip side if that yields from their impressive 138 hectares are significantly down - a now familiar narrative so far in this EP campaign. And so, Lagrange is well-worthy of your attention: forest leaf, cedar and a cigar box of florals enhance excellent ripeness; creamy, spicy, long and vibrant fruit, it is a wine full of life and surely one to visit and revisit over the next 30 years as it evolves gracefully.

Château Lagrange is 66% Cabernet, 27% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot aged up to 21 months in 60% new oak and is grown across 102 separate parcels on two gently sloping, gravelly hillsides. Investment from deep-pocketed Suntori has always been forthcoming and the state-of-the-art winery delivered a very accomplished wine indeed this year.

Critic reviews:
"Deep purple-black in color, the 2020 Lagrange leaps from the glass with vibrant notes of redcurrant jelly, ripe blackcurrants and minted blackberries, followed by nuances of dark chocolate, star anise and mossy tree bark. The medium-bodied palate is both super intense and super elegant, featuring exquisitely ripe, fine-grained tannins and seamless freshness to frame the bright, crunchy black and red fruits, finishing long and mineral laced. Drink 2025-2050."
94 - 96 pts, Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, www.robertparker.com

"The 2020 Lagrange has a sensual, beautifully defined bouquet of mineral-infused black fruit, briar, touches of wild mint and crushed stone, conveying wonderful energy and precision. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, tensile and focused, delivering plenty of energy and an almost steely but persistent finish. This is a classy Lagrange from winemaker Matthieu Bordes and his team. I always feel this Saint-Julien is underrated, but it will challenge the best 2020s from the appellation. Drink 2028-2050."
93 - 95 pts, Neal Martin, www.vinous.com
