The 2019 Lagarde Bordeaux Rouge is fragrant, poised, and well-structured. Its deep garnet color and silky texture come from the deliciously balanced Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc blend. It opens with smoky and fruity aromas, harmonious with flavors of charred nuts, roasted berries, and clay. As you take another sip, the complex bouquet unlocks undertones of craisins and ripe cassis. This is a bold, dry red with firm, yet polished tannins, and a vibrant acidity that does not overpower the wine.
The Lagarde Bordeaux Rouge will entrance you with its satiny, crisp medium body and its smooth, earthy finish. Cultivated 100% organically from grapes with zero preservatives and sulfites, this classic red wine is best served around the family table when dining on a rich stew, veggie burgers, or cashew cream pasta.
Organic 65% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc
Frequently Asked Questions
What makes Lagarde’s wine produced by Organic Agriculture different from other organic vineyards?
The Raymond family has a deep appreciation for the soil on which each vine is planted. The family uses organic methods to ensure each vine is respected by using a cultivation process called “raisonnée”. Raisonnée means well-reasoned, so essentially each hectare is planted with more heads of vines to give them ample room and allow for an easier green harvest. In the end, the consumer is the one who benefits when drinking Largarde’s delicious organic wine.
