Unlike in previous vintages, Petit Verdot was excluded from the blend in this vintage of Lagrange, but the varietal can be found in the blend of Les Fiefs de Lagrange, the second wine of the chateau.
Chateau Lagrange 2009 enjoyed ideal climatic conditions resulting in the 2009 vintage becoming one of the most mythical. Of great richness and an imposing character, it offers exceptional aging potential and can be consumed at any time until 2039.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tightly knit, oaky and rich, with formidable concentration, but broodingly backward and not showing the charm and concentration of the top wines of St.-Julien, this 2009 from Lagrange is still an outstanding effort that has length, richness and character. It should be cellared for a good 5-6 years and then consumed over the following 25 years.
