Firm and still dry with the solid tannins, the wine's ripe fruitiness is developing well. The combination gives great potential. Black currant and berry fruits are both there with crisp juicy acidity. The aftertaste is a reminder that this wine has a long way to go. (RV)
I like the spice, chili and stone character with the ripe yet cool fruit. Medium to full body, chewy and polished tannins and a long and flavorful finish.
The 2014 Lagrange is terrific. Bold, juicy and exuberant, the 2014 possesses striking balance and textural richness. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, iron, smoke and tobacco underpin a core of intense red-toned fruit in a super-expressive, layered wine endowed with real pedigree. The firm, muscular tannins need time to soften, but there is plenty to look forward to. (AG)
The 2014 Lagrange has indeed pulled its socks up, as I opined when I tasted the wine from barrel. Now in bottle, it has a conservative, tertiary nose with introverted black fruit mixed with cedar and sandalwood aromas. It feels tight at the moment but there is satisfying focus here. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin on the entry, though the Merlot component becomes more prominent towards the finish and offers a lovely fleshy, poised finish with a dab of black pepper on the aftertaste. Modest but stylish Lagrange, which is exactly what you expect. (NM)
Mid crimson. Fragrant, almost floral dark fruit with a definite herbaceous note. Finely textured dry tannins, fresh and moreish and with just enough ripeness to balance the notable acidity. Tannins already quite gentle. (JH)
A fruitcake note leads the way, followed by warm plum sauce, crushed blackberry and cassis details. A firm graphite edge holds the finish, leaving a taut feel in the end. (JM)
