2007 Lagrange 75CL
The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, grippy in the mouth, with cedar and sage towards the finish. There is impressive body and presence conferred by this Lagrange that is aging with style (as this Saint Julien has a propensity to do in more challenging growing seasons). This is one to watch. Tasted February 2017.
"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."
