  • Neal Martin, April 2023, Score: 95-97

    The 2022 Lagrange was picked between 8 and 30 September, it ages in 60% new oak for a planned 21 months. It has an almost clinical bouquet, with very well defined blackberry and blueberry fruit, graphite and crushed stone. Quite a gap in quality between this and the Fiefs de Lagrange this year. The palate is extremely pure with cashmere tannins, black cherry fruit infused by blood orange, lightly spiced, hints of white pepper toward a very concentrated, fine-boned finish. This will require several years in bottle, but it will be worth waiting for. A serious and very able Lagrange that should not be under-estimated. Drink 2029-2055

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 94-96+

    The 2022 Lagrange is brilliant, ranking alongside the 2020, 2019 and 2016 as one of this over-performing estate's finest recent vintages. Revealing aromas of dark cherries, cassis, violets and pencil shavings, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered, with a deep core of fruit, beautifully refined but youthfully assertive tannins and a long, mouthwatering finish. It's a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot with a very healthy pH of 3.63.

  • Decanter, April 2023, Score: 96

    Juicy and intensely ripe in terms of texture - tannins are fleshy but also really cool giving this a push-pull of bright acidity and actually quite serious mineral elements of flint and liquorice. Such an appealing weight in the mouth, layered and structured with expressive fruit and lively juiciness all combining to a stylish and inviting whole. So much going on but managed with finesse and elegance. A clear success in 2022. Harvest 8-30 September. Ageing 21 months in French oak, 60% new. Tasted twice.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Score: 92-94

    The 2022 Lagrange is a bold, racy wine. Dried herbs, tobacco, cedar, mint and incense give the 2022 striking aromatic nuance and vibrancy to match its mid-weight personality. The Cabernet is especially evident in this savory and punchy Saint-Julien that is showing very well today. Drink 2027-2042.

  • Goedhuis, April 2023, Score: 92-94

    Good terroir wasn’t the only important factor in making a success of the summer heat in 2022. Vine-age proved critical for many chateaux, as older vines have deeper roots to tap into bedrock moisture. The average vine age of 45 years at Ch Lagrange has helped to make a fabulous wine. Alluring notes of Morello cherry and bramble rise from the glass. On the palate it is supple and elegant, made with a gentle touch. The flavours follow the nose with lashings of blackberry and bramble. That hallmark 2022 freshness combines with finely-grained tannins to make a perfectly judged wine. Chapeau.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 94-95

    Solid Lagrange with blueberry and blackberry character. Medium body and a tannin structure that unfolds at the finish. Very well done.

  • Jane Anson, April 2023, Score: 96

    A Lagrange with real depth and restraint, feels so perfectly Left Bank, really impressive, a wine that shows the true possibilities of the vintage. There is a build up of tannins through the palate, but also a juiciness and a gorgeous cassis, bilberry and fresh cherry pit seduction, with huge confidence and clear ageing potential.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 91-94

    The 2022 Château Lagrange is more mid-weight than I expected, yet it's nicely balanced and certainly elegant. Based on 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and 2% Petit Verdot pulled from just 40% of the total production, it has a pretty nose of cassis and black raspberry fruits as well as some floral and spicy nuances. Its oak is nicely integrated, it's medium to full-bodied, and it has fine tannins. The barrel review will seem low if this puts on weight over the course of its élevage.

  • LPB, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    The 2022 Lagrange is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot, and 2% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it bursts forth with bombastic notions of creme de cassis, blackberry preserves, and redcurrant jelly, leading to alluring nuances of cinnamon stick, clove oil, star anise, and violets. The medium-bodied palate is densely laden with black fruit and baking spices layers, supported by ripe, fine-grained tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long and opulent. 40% of the year's production went into the first wine and yields were 34 hl/ha. pH 3.53.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 17.5+

    Château Lagrange (3ème Cru Saint-Julien) 86 Cabernet Sauvignon, 12 Merlot, 2 Petit Verdot 60% new oak 13.5% alc This is a somewhat predictable offering from Lagrange when I was hoping for a little more excitement and theatre. Erring on the red fruit side of the fence, despite the Cabernet-dominant blend, this is a pure wine with a neat palate, decent balance and an even, if oak-imprinted, finish. This wine will please all-comers, but in 2022, pleasing is not enough when so many wines are absolutely stunning and memorable works of art!

Region

St Julien

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
