Very firm and focused with silky tannins, which are driven and intense. Full-bodied yet reserved and polished. Impressive finish for the estate with chocolate and light coffee bean. Pure merlot.
Deep dark ruby garnet colour with opaque core and purple reflections, subtle brightening on the rim. Ripe plums, blackberry confit, orange zest in the background, inviting bouquet. Juicy and fresh, red cherries, mineral, discreet fruitiness on the finish, good length, secure ageing potential.
Smells nicely floral and aromatic, scented and fruity. Cool fresh acidity and fleshy red and blue fruits with ample, grippy tannins initially, all lovely elements, but then it loses some push and persistence. Tannins are at the fore, and do most of the talking, even though they're nicely compact with detail as well as richness.
All Merlot from deep, blue clay soils (there are some gravelly parts as well), the 2022 Château Lagrange (Pomerol) reveals a ruby/plum hue to go with beautiful aromatics of chocolaty red and black fruits, leafy tobacco, and damp earth-like nuances. It’s rich, medium to full-bodied, has ripe tannins, and outstanding length.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Aromas of rich berries, cherries, spices and truffles introduce the 2022 Lagrange (Pomerol), a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy wine that's deep and layered, its sweet core of fruit framed by powdery tannins.
The Wine Independent (Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW)
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2022 Lagrange (Pomerol) rolls out of the glass with easy-breezy notes of red currant jelly, black raspberries, and fresh blackberries, followed by suggestions of aniseed and bay leaves. The medium to full-bodied palate is charged with energetic red berry flavors, framed by well-managed, approachable tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with a skip in its step. This is made from 100% Merlot.
Jeff Leve (The Wine Cellar Insider)
Soft, silky, medium-bodied, plums, spice, and cocoa with a smoky edge to the red pit fruits on the palate with its already easy-to-taste character.
Neal Martin (Vinous)
The 2022 Lagrange, the Pomerol estate not Saint-Julien, was picked 6-13 September, pure Merlot as usual. Fairly uncomplicated on the nose, one could argue that it feels a little monotone compared to its peers, though its purity of fruit should be applauded. There’s almost a minty element to these aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied, and well balanced, with dark chocolate infusing the black fruit. Good weight with ample freshness on the finish. What it lacks in intellectual heft is compensated with a sense of joie-de-vivre. So much better than this estate was producing a decade ago.
Jane Anson (Inside Bordeaux)
Plum colour with vivid raspberry highlights, gentle oak smoking, run towards an intense wall of tannins and smoked caramel notes, balanced by supple black fruits. Gourmet, intense, with appellation and vintage signature.
