Chateau Lagrange 1996

 18,800.00

The 1996 Chateau Lagrange wine is a classic Bordeaux as well as a textbook St Julien. This Chateau Lagrange wine has dense, powerful yet elegant 1996 vintage which is broodingly backward, but it does reveal considerable promise. The dark purple color is accompanied by a nose that reluctanctly offers up aromas of sweet toasty oak, cassis, cedar, and minerals. The 1996 Chateau Lagrange wine possesses full body and outstanding concentration, as well as an overall sense of elegance and equilibrium. Backward but not aggressively tannic, the 1996 Lagrange should continue to flesh out and merit an outstanding rating.

This 1996 Chateau Lagrange wine has a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot, the 1996 is even more subdued on the nose than the 1996, with overt cedar and tobacco aromas.

This impeccably run, Japanese-owned property has fashioned a superb 1996. Opaque purple-colored, with a backward yet promising nose of classically pure cassis intermixed with pain grille and spice, this medium to full-bodied, powerful yet stylish wine possesses superb purity, a nicely-layered feel in the mouth, and plenty of structure.
