    March 25, 2017 - Tasted next to the 2005 and 1996. Very youthful and tannic. Lots of structure, good acidity and fruit, currently not very talkative, but promising. Very long. 91-92+

    February 11, 2017 - Way too young. On day 1 and 2, the wine was tannic and acidic and tight. Color was young purple. The finish on the palate was thin. On day 3, the wine softened but was a little flat by then. The finish was still a little thin but it did gain some depth. Open next in 2021.

    January 28, 2017 - Intense, oh-so-pretty nose of blue flowers, blue and red fruits, pencil shavings and cocoa dust. Unmistakable left-bank Bordeaux, the flavors familiar to every claret lover are all present.

    Still quite primary; its young sinews are developing, its tannins softening. Even at this early stage, the entry is already pure silk, the saturation on the palate absolute. This one will be a beauty in a few more years.

    Here's a wine that arouses such strong emotions that flavor descriptors alone don't do it justice. Breathing in its heady aromas reminds me of what it's like to again experience wonder. It reminds me that the simple pleasures are the most satisfying, the embrace of an old lover the most comforting.

    January 25, 2017 - Enofusión 2017; 1/23/2017-1/25/2017 (IFEMA - Madrid): Simply perfect in terms of balance. 75% CS that shows its structure in the mouth contributing a full-bodied texture. It is not ready yet but the potential with fresh red fruit is very hopeful. Just needs time. Let's wait.

    Sencillamente perfecto en cuanto a equilibrio. 75% CS que se nota en boca aportando cuerpo. No está lista pero el potencial con fruta roja fresca es muy esperanzador.

    December 18, 2016 - I love Lagrange! Just love it...One of the most Bordeaux correct wines made possible with Japanese meticulous attention to detail and authenticity. I was so psyched about pulling the work from the great 2010 harvest. However....The 2010 Lagrange reminds me of the 1996 in its adolescents. It still has not developed ANY real bordeaux characteristics, but, they are all there for the future. The wine is reserved, with a muted nose of faint currents and the palate is filled with undersweet red and blue fruit and new oak. The oak is still poking out. The wine is already velvety, and the finish is quite long and tight, which gives me hope for the future improvement of the thin mid palate. This reminds me so much of the 1996...I don't think it will ever be great like the 1990 or 2000, but I think if will be damn good in 10 years and improve by a couple of notches. Wish it had more middle umph...HOLD

    (Château Lagrange (St. Julien)) Very dark purple red violet color; appealing, herbaceous, menthol, deep black fruit nose; ripe black currant, menthol, tart plum palate; medium-plus finish (75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot)

    (Chateau Lagrange (St Julien)) This is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot. Following on from Gruaud this sample does not seem so expressive on the nose at first, despite the wine's vibrant crimson appearance. Given time in the glass though it soon reveals some light, pretty, perfumed fruit with a floral edge. Rather a touch of cream at the start on the palate, with a supple and slightly fat feel to it in the middle, with charcoaly-grainy tannins coming in here. There is just a light chew to the finish, with a lot of fruit here, and a grippy length too. Another very good effort from Lagrange, one of the new darlings of the commune I think.
