2000 Château Lagrange (St. Julien)

Community Tasting Note


93 Points

Saturday, November 6, 2010 - San Antonio Wine Geeks - The Great Gathering (aka: Steak porn/Wine Orgy); 11/5/2010-11/6/2010 (The Home of Steve Treu): Great example of a wine in a big year that has obvious modern influence and contains elements of a Napa cab, but retains its sense of balance and place. Big ripe nose, with bright red fruits, with burn toast and just a hint of funk. Complex palate, quite dense and concentrated but frsh, with smooth fine tannins. Moderate length finish with the fruit hanging on along with toast and just a hint of vanilla. Big, but balanced and refined, drinking well now but peak is far in the future. Glad I have a couple of these.
