Wine Notes

Third Growth. Troisieme Grand Cru Classe in 1855. There are three Bordeaux Chateaux called Lagrange - one in Saint-Julien, one in Graves and the other in Pomerol.

Tasting note: Deeply-coloured with crimson highlights. Focused nose of red and black fruits with refined yet evident oak. Powerful, well-integrated and melted at point of entry. Warm style finishing on a drier note marked by oak. (12-Mar-2012) [Gilbert & Gaillard]

Tasting note: This Japanese-owned third growth is very Cabernet Sauvignon in style with firm slightly four-square tannins but good underlying acidity and bright blackcurrantfruit. The tannins should soften in barrel and bottle to produce something withconsiderable style and restraint. 10+ years. [Tim Atkin]

Tasting note: With ripe plums, blackberries, cedar and balanced tannins, this well made wine can also be enjoyed fairly early; however, there is sufficient fruit concentration and tannins to warrant aging for at least a decade. Tasted in: Bordeaux, France. Maturity: Young. (01-Mar-2010) [Asian Palate Jeannie Cho Lee]

Grape Variety: Bordeaux Blend Red

A Bordeaux Blend, at its most basic, is any combination of those grape varieties typically used to make the red wines of Bordeaux. The phrase, which seems to have originated with British wine merchants in the 19th Century, relates as much to wines made from the blend as to the grape-variety combination itself (© Copyright material, Far from being an officially defined or legal term, it is almost never used for wine-labeling purposes (although it occasionally appears on back labels). Its equivalent in the United States is Meritage, which is not only legally defined, but also a registered trademark.

    Sandwiched between the more famous appellations of Pauillac and Margaux, Saint-Julien is sometimes unfairly overlooked because it does not have a first-growth chateau. Pauillac has three of the five Medoc first growths and Margaux has one. The ... more
