Les Fiefs de Lagrange, Chateau Lagrange (3rd Growths), 2nd Wine, St-Julien, 75cl, 2013
is on back order
61% of Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% of Merlot, 9% de Petit-Verdot
The Les Fiefs de Lagrange, a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 9% Petit Verdot, has plenty of vanillary red fruit on the nose interlaced with blueberry and kirsch. It is simple but has plenty of power. The palate is medium-bodied with refined tannins. There is surprising structure here for a second wine whilst the finish is composed and very focused. This is very commendable for a second wine in this vintage. Tasted March 2014.
