Winemaker's Notes

A veritable demonstration of balance, this wine illustrates the perfect alchemy between the three grape varieties : Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Powerful and lively in its youth, a slow, serene evolution over time endows this wine with a delicate elegance.

Dark and deep with purple tint. Blackcherry, blackcurrant, liquorice and black pepper on the nose. Full­bodied, freshness with menthol, round, powerful and long finish. Enjoyable already, this exceptional 2016 is able to age a long time due to its silky tannins. A great and well balanced 2016 Lagrange: nice harmony with classicism and modernity.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Rated 95:

The best wine from this château in many years! A huge, dramatic, blackcurrant and wild-blackberry nose and the first impression on the palate is every bit as intense. Nice acidity lifts this massive structure and keeps the imposing finish so fresh. Drink or hold.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 95:

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Lagrange sashays out of the glass with notions of candied violets, cassis, underbrush and warm black plums with waves of Black Forest cake, cedar chest and yeast extract scents. Medium to full-bodied, the bags of perfumed black fruits are solidly structured with super ripe, grainy tannins, finishing long and layered.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 94:

A textbook St.-Julien, with a fleshy yet focused beam of plum, blueberry and cassis flavors striding through, while warmed anise, sweet tobacco and iron notes play backup through the finish. Mouthwatering grip will allow this to cellar nicely.

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Rated 94:

The Grand Vin 2016 Château Lagrange checks in 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot brought up in equal parts new and used barrels. It shows the fresher, elegant style of the vintage and offers beautiful black cherry and cassis fruits intermixed with tobacco leaf, damp earth, and cedar. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, seamless, and layered, it has a vibrant, tight texture, terrific tannin quality, and a great finish. It's a quintessential expression of this vintage. Give bottles 4-5 years and enjoy over the following two to three decades.

Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 91:

Surprisingly light for the vintage, this is an attractive, black-currant-flavored wine. It is open, with tannins integrate easily into the fruitiness. All this suggests the wine will age relatively quickly, so drink from 2024.
