Grand Vin Saint-Julien 2012
This classic Claret has been described as a “fine expression of Cabernet fruit” and complimented for its “elegance and depth for the future” by Decanter Magazine’s Steven Spurrier. Elegance is very much the name of the game here; the refreshing acidity keeps the wild summer fruits, plum, redcurrant and blackcurrant flavours crisp, while the subtle oak, leather, clove, vanilla and meatiness provide intrigue.
Château Lagrange is a winery that has changed names several times since the middle ages and was once owned by Baron de Brane along with Brane-Cantenac and Mouton Rothschild, the latter being called Brane-Mouton at the time. Lagrange was bought by Suntory in 1983, and the Japanese company have made big investments in the château, yielding fabulous results in recent years.
Wine critic James Suckling awarded this vintage of Lagrange 92 points and it has now entered its drinking window. So pull the cork with a Sunday roast, a bubbling lasagne or herby slow-cooked dishes.
