Les Fiefs de Lagrange (Second Wine)

2015 vintage.

St Julien Troisième Cru Classé 1855 The fortunes of Château Lagrange were revived with the purchase of the estate by japanese spirits giant Suntory in 1983. Before that, the 20th Century had been a difficult time. Some vineyard had had to be sold off (to Ducru-Beaucaillou and Gloria) and the reputation had slipped considerably. Marcel Ducasse was employed to run the estate, and the new owners pumped in investment.

"Second vin of Chateau Lagrange, Les Fiefs de Lagrange comes from 30 year old vines on average, planted on fine gravel soils for Cabernet Sauvignon and clay for Merlot. A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot. This purple-tinted bright red Les Fiefs de Lagrange of Chateau Lagrange gives off dark and red berries notes. Its fresh attack reveals minted and spicy notes. Its balance between acidity and tannic structure confers it a superb elegance. This vintage is considered to be one of the most complete since the 2009 vintage. The 2015 Les Fiefs de Lagrange can be tasted between 2018 and 2030."

Tasting Note:
Cassis, red currants and cherries on the nose with touches of dried flowers and lavender plus a waft of thyme. The medium-bodied mouth is fine and fresh with soft, ripe tannins and a perfumed finish.
