The 2005 Lagrange comes across as somewhat masculine, tannic, and austere. The oak is under control, which is always good to see, but the wine lacks charm and sweetness, although there is some nice concentration and body. Give it another 4-5 years and drink it over the next two decades.
"A place of great agricultural activity even back in Gallo-Roman times: from the Gallo-Roman Villa Rustica to the Grangia in the Middle Ages which was to give the estate its name. Lagrange discovers an early winegrowing vocation thanks to the Templars who join together two domains: the Maison noble de Lagrange de Monteil to the West joins the Tenure of Pellecalhus (meaning peeled stone) to the East.
In the present-day vineyard, the names of two vine plots bear witness to this era, l’Hôpital and La Chapelle; Lagrange becomes the largest wine-producing estate in the Medoc."
