Château Lagrange Saint-Julien
3ème Cru Classé in 1855
This vintage is reminiscent of an Indian summer, with above average temperatures and beautiful dry weather. The wine has depth and intensity, it is balanced and harmonious, elegant and discreet - just the right Médoc blend, considered to be among the domain's exceptional successes.
AOC (controlled designation of origin)
A more precise tannins, suave yet powerful, it will charm you with its elegance. A vintage that could be aged longer. A perfumed flowery aroma with hints of blackfruits and wild berries, medium-bodied and dry on the palate, with a relative crispness in acidity yet solid tannins that is good for a long stretched finish.
Best served with classic red and white meat dishes - beef, pork, lamb, game, veal, duck, roast chicken, grilled dishes, mushrooms, gratins, and cheeses.
