Château Lagrange

Always buy second wines in very good vintages, and this year is a definite for Fiefs de Lagrange. The second wine of Chateau Lagrange represents 65% of the total crop. Owned by Suntory, the winemaking team were instructed to make the best wine possible regardless of cost. They therefore downgraded more plots into this second wine, and by doing so improved both this and the 'grand vin'. With an average vine age of 35 years, the quality of grapes is exceptional. Rich and fruity, beautiful and charming tannins with an impressive structure that supports a super concentration of cassis
