The 2018 Chateau Lagrange wine is charming and gracious. This Chateau Lagrange is sweet, lifted aromatics and mid-weight structure give the 2018 tons of immediacy. Bright red berries, blood orange, mint, spice, rose petal and cedar build with time in the glass. Polished, silky tannins grace the beautifully persistent finish. Simultaneously powerful and harmonious, the wine retains a great aromatic freshness. A great vintage for Chateau Lagrange, already accessible in its youth but also promising a beautiful evolution over time.
A red Grand Vin from Saint-Julien, the Chateau Lagrange 2018 blends Cabernet Sauvignon (67%), Merlot (28%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The wine is aged in oak barrels (50% new oak) for 21 months.
