Ch. Lagrange (0.75 L)
WA: A very strong effort from Lagrange in 2006, this estateí»s tendency for including a nearly overwhelming oak component in its wines has been tamed in this Cuv¿ªe, resulting in a better-balanced, potentially complex offering. A deep opaque purple color is followed by aromas of espresso roast, subtle pain grille, black currants, and cigar box. Full-bodied and surprisingly powerful for a 2006, with outstanding purity, texture, and depth, patience will be required for this beauty. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2027.
