Prachtige tweede wijn uit het grote jaar 2016 van Château Lagrange, 3e Grand Cru Classé uit Saint Julien.
The 2016 Les Fiefs de Lagrange, which actually comes from 35-year-old vines nowadays, is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot and matured in 20% new oak. It has a very intense bouquet, especially for a Deuxième Vin, with pure black cherry, crème de cassis and crushed violets. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, quite tensile in the mouth and full of joie de vivre. You cannot really go wrong with Les Fiefs, and I bet it will be a great value once released.

The 2016 Les Fiefs de Lagrange is an absolute joy. Plaint and forward, with striking fruit density, the 2016 delivers the goods. Sweet red cherry, blood orange, mint and sweet tobacco add layers of nuance, but it is the wine's depth and purity of fruit that stand out. What a delicious wine this is.
A beautiful St.-Julien that’s got everything you expect from this appellation, from the elegant, moderately dry tannins to the ripe red fruit and the lively acidity. Second wine of Château Lagrange. Drink or hold
