From the Moueix stable, a 9ha site with gravel on clay. It's an enjoyable mix of austere tannins and rich blueberry fruit, and although buttoned up right now it has a whoosh of menthol fresh mint leaf and a sense of enjoyable energy. It gets better with time in the glass, a subdued but pretty and promising wine that will be at its best over the next five to six years.
A 2017 with serious depth of fruit and firm tannins. Solid center palate. Fresh and long finish. Should come out nicely.
The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2017 Lagrange is 100% Merlot and opens with a seriously plummy nose with a compelling undercurrent of spice cake, potpourri and chocolate box plus a waft of sage. Medium-bodied, taut and muscular with a rugged frame of chewy tannins and lively acid, it finishes with an energizing herbal lift.
