|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Julien|
|Brand||Les Fiefs de Lagrange|
The second wine of the property was established in 1985 following the acquisition by Suntory group.It comes from vines that average 30 years old today and planted on gravelly soils for fine Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for some clay. Received the same care as the Grand Vin, with a search for maturity and concentration in the vineyard, a plot vinification and aging adapted to its tannic structure. The wine is characterized by round tannins, aromas of red and black fruits on his youth.
Features roasted alder and juniper out front, with a core of pastis-soaked plum, blackberry and black currant fruit underneath. The vivid finish features a mouthwatering edge. Best from 2014 through 2024. -JM
