Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
"Great nose of blueberries, spices and hints of walnuts. Full body, with a lovely finish of well-integrated tannins and a long, long finish. This is structured yet all in finesse. Best in years."
"With vineyards in the west of Saint-Julien, Lagrangeproduces wines that are polished and elegant.
In 2010, that style has been suffused with tannins while
also delivering a black currant flavor. The wine is rich
and ripe, with just the right amount of tannic structure
for the fruit."
"Notes of singed alder, graphite and charcoal wrap around the core of intense blackberry paste, warm plum sauce and currant preserves. Turns sleek and racy on the well-knit finish despite the notable grip. Best from 2015 through 2030."
"Bright ruby with purple highlights. Reticent nose offers delicate aromas of blackcurrant, violet and cedar. A pronounced minerality gives delicacy to the rather forward blackberry, gunflint and licorice flavors. Finishes long, but with a slight green edge to the building tannins. A nicely balanced, medium-bodied Lagrange: perhaps time in bottle will bring more volume and flesh.
