    (Château Lagrange (St Julien)) Rather a muted nose here, the fruit hidden behind the oak at present, although given a little time in the glass it does come out very nicely. It has an interesting, slightly gritty character, reminiscent of dark red fruits, cherries in particular. A supple start on the palate, one that seems much better composed than I expected considering the slight reticence of the nose. There is a supple style of fruit, the tannins give a good backbone, and the acidity is on the fresher side, and overall it all works together very well. There is a light texture to it but in the middle it is undeniably grippy and tense. A wine with certain promise.

    (Chateau Lagrange St Julien) An attractive nose here, with a slight nuance of perfume to the fruit, with little exotic fruit elements too. It has appeal. The palate is soft, supple, gently fleshy, perhaps too soft? Certainly modern in style, but also charcoaly and unknit at present. Appealing fruit though. A good effort showing better than the primeur sample, which I found difficult to judge.

    (Chateau Lagrange St Julien) An inexpressive wine today, showing very little character on the nose. The palate is similarly reticent in terms of revealing any flavour or scent. There is a lot of structure, with overt tannins suggestive of rather aggressive extraction, and firm acids. There is just no fruit detectable, and this certainly seems rather awkward at present. Difficult to judge.
