The 2013 Chateau Lagrange wine exhibits an attractive deep ruby color as well as less oak than is normally found during the first year of tasting. This St Julien red wine offers supple tannins, excellent texture and good purity. This Chateau Lagrange wine is successful, medium-bodied 2013 vintage should drink well for 8-10 years.
The 2013 Chateau Lagrange wine is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot picked between 30 September and 14 October with the last Petit Verdot vines representing 40% of the total crop. It sports considerable fruitiness on the nose with vibrant and pure red cherries, fresh strawberry and cedar that is well defined. This is definitely one of the more assured Saint Julien wines of the year and should be well worth picking out.
