From a parcel of vines in the Saint-Julien property of Château Lagrange, this wine is a fine, classically balanced white Bordeaux, with its herbaceous character tamed by a light touch of wood, and the edge of earthiness that seems characteristic of whites from the Médoc. The wine ends with vivid acidity and green fruits.
