1989 Château Lagrange (St. Julien)

Community Tasting Note


Wednesday, March 6, 2013 - La Commanderie de Bordeaux: Chateau Lagrange Vertical (Bishop's - Vancouver, BC): Very rustic on the nose showing some ashy aromas, along with pipe tobacco, cigar leaf, red cherry, and some green leaf. Still quite ashy and leafy on the palate as well, plus more red cherry, tobacco, licorice, and tar. A medium- length finish ending on notes of ash and tobacco. This displays an off putting ashy-ness on both the nose and palate, and is quite austere. At peak but lacking any real excitement. I have to say this was quite disappointing, especially considering the vintage at play here. I expected more. Good+
