Critic Notes

Solid core of juicy fruit here with currant and stone character. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a bright finish. Second wine of Lagrange. Mar 2017, www.jamessuckling.com

Score: 92-93/100James Suckling

The 2016 Les Fiefs de Lagrange, which actually comes from 35-year-old vines nowadays, is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot and matured in 20% new oak. It has a very intense bouquet, especially for a Deuxième Vin, with pure black cherry, crème de cassis and crushed violets. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, quite tensile in the mouth and full of joie de vivre. You cannot really go wrong with Les Fiefs, and I bet it will be a great value once released.

This is a sexy, well polished wine, deep and rich with blackcurrant fruit and a ripple of freshness. There is nice balance, making for an easy drinking yet impactful wine. Effortless. Apr 2017, www.decanter.com, Drink: 2027-2050

An open-knit style, with bright anise and açai notes out front, backed by cassis and crushed cherry fruit flavors. Shows a dusting of vanilla on the finish. Apr 2017, James Molesworth, www.winespectator.com

Score: 88-91/100Wine Spectator

The 2016 Les Fiefs de Lagrange is a delicious second wine from Lagrange. Plump, forward and juicy, the Fiefs is everything a second wine should be. Aromatically expressive and pliant, with midweight structure and impeccable balance, the 2016 is a winner. Apr 2017, www.vinous.com

Score: 88-91/100Antonio Galloni

Not that concentrated crimson. Light and dry. Respectable and quite dry. Far from heavy. Quite demandingly dry. Apr 2017, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2030

Score: 16-/20Jancis RobinsonDrinking Window: 2023-2030

The 2016 Les Fiefs de Lagrange has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and a nose of warm red and black currants, earth and minerals with a waft of roses. The palate is medium-bodied and plush with plenty of juicy fruit and an earthy finish. Nov 2018, www.robertparker.com

Score: 88-/100Lisa Perrotti-Brown
