Château Lagrange 2014 displays great elegance and rich character. Flower scent from red roses coupled with delicious, intense notes of blackberries and wild raspberries. Well-structured, generous, solid, and forward, this Saint-Julien boasts robust, substantial, strong tannins leading to a sophisticated finish. Château Lagrange 2014 shows great balance and an unusually strong build without infringing on distinctive traits of the brand and of the appellation.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Château Lagrange 2014 has a perfumed nose with blackcurrant pastille. It is well defined with nicely integrated oak, black rather than red fruit with a pleasant touch of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe black fruit and a keen line of acidity. It does not quite possess the weight and concentration of its peers. It is balanced but it needs to muster more substance during its élevage. A second and third example confirmed my findings, a Lagrange that needs to pull its socks up by the time of bottling.
