Château Lagrange, 3ème Cru Classé, St Julien, 2016

  Château Lagrange

Even in the most generous vintages Lagrange has an austerity and coolness. The 2016 is black fruited and true to its style. Cool, intense, with some mulberry fruit and quite a hard tannic structure. It could do with a bit more flesh.

Contains Sulphites.
