Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. The Lagrange ’01 is your quintessential Saint Julien wine with blackberry, cedar, cigar box and a touch of smoke. Very focused with great penetration. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, superb balanced with a superb cedar and tobacco tinged finish supported by ample red fruits. Great length, just a wine you want to drink (although it should keep for another decade.) Tasted March 2011. (NM)
Sexy, sweet aromas of black plum, black raspberry and flowers; smells more like merlot, while the 2000 is more cabernet. Juicy and suave in the mouth, with subtle but intense flavors nicely firmed by juicy acids. Classy, impeccably balanced wine with very fine-grained tannins. While this is not at all hard today, it really should be given ten years in the cellar. (ST) 90+
Lots of floral, berry and raspberry character on the nose. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a fresh finish. Lovely wine. Round and refined. *Smart Buys* (JS)
Light but very complete nose. Absolutely classic claret with nothing out of place. All very succulent but dry rather than sweet. I can’t see how anyone could be disappointed by this, unless they didn’t understand red bordeaux at all. 17.5/20 Points (JR)
