Pretty aromas of blackberries and currants, with hints of lead pencil. Full-bodied, yet very balanced, with a solid core of fruit and ultrafine tannins. Really well-crafted wine. Lagrange often excels in less than easy vintages, like 2002. Excellent. *Smart Buys and Top 100 Wines of 2005* (JS)
Tasted blind at the chateau, this bottle is better than previous examples that I have tasted. The nose has more vigour with more fruit intensity, though still with those scents of wild mushrooms (cepes) and truffle, sous-bois scents emerging with coaxing. The palate is medium-bodied and quite rounded and fresh on the entry. Not a complex Lagrange but a very cohesive, harmonious texture with dark cherries and Earl Grey towards the finish. Very fine.

Bright ruby-red. Brisk aromas of currant, cedar and minerals. Firmly built, complex and aromatic, with lovely flavor definition and excellent palate coverage. Finishes with mouthcoating tannins and very good length. An excellent vintage for Lagrange. In comparison to this wine, the young 2004 seems more medicinal and austere, with a larger structure. (ST)
Some rather appealing graphite on the nose. Lots of fruit on the front palate – really a rather unusual amount. Still quite a marked charge of tannin. But all seems to be in the right place and proportion. Clean, brisk finish. (GV)
