The 2006 Lagrange has continued to blossom since the last time I saw it seven or eight months ago, and is clearly destined to be one of the very finest bottles on the Left Bank this year. The bouquet is deep and very pure, as it soars from the glass in a superb mélange of red and black cherries, tobacco, gravelly soil tones, espresso, a deft touch of new oak and a distinct topnote of rose petals. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and vibrant, with a fine core of fruit, ripe tannins, great acids and outstanding length and grip on the complex and focused finish. A terrific bottle in the making, and showing even better than when I last tasted it seven months ago. (Drink between 2020-2060)
I awarded the 2006 Château Lagrange a very high score when I tasted it from barrel. It does nothing to dispel my optismism in bottle after ten years. It has a lively, quite vivacious bouquet with blackberry, briary, cedar and violet scents, almost Margaux-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine grip in the mouth. The acidity here is well judged, extremely well focused with impressive weight and structure on the finish, backed up by that tobacco-stained fruit. You cannot go wrong with Lagrange in this vintage.

Very elegant, very classy, this wine shows, discreetly, its sweet juicy fruit, great ripe black currant flavor and fine tannins. Nothing is overstated; this is for lovers of stylish wines. (RV)
Bright red-ruby. High-pitched aromas of blueberry, cassis, bitter chocolate, pepper, herbs and violet. Enters the mouth suave and smooth, then builds and expands toward the back, offering classic black fruit, licorice, mineral and violet flavors and saturating the palate with fine, dusty tannins. The floral finish offers lovely lift and sneaky persistence. (ST)
Subtle aromas of raspberry and coffee bean follow through to a full body, with refined tannins and a fruity finish. Silky and balanced, even delicate. Not at all overdone. (JS)
