Complex nose, lots of fruit, spices, slightly floral and mineral. Savoury on the palate, again mineral, grippy tannins, good fruit, vibrant acidity. Elegant and very classic, excellent. Good future. 92-93(+)
This wine is evolving nicely and is providing a lot of enjoyment at this point. With that said, there is more to come, and I will try my best to hold me remaining bottles for at least a few more years before revisiting

(Chateau Lagrange St Julien) Exuberant and ripe berry fruit on the nose here, nuances of smoke, but overall the suggestion of gently fat, fleshy fruit. Good substance on the palate, again soft and a little loosely held together, but we have here flesh, rather firm and crunchy tannins and good vibrant acidity. I like the character presented on the nose and there are some appealingly bright characteristics present on the palate too. This has a lot of appeal and will be excellent given time.
(Château Lagrange (St. Julien)) Dark cherry red color; toasty oak and espresso nose; big, plum, cassis and toast palate with good structure; medium finish (65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot)
(Chateau Lagrange St Julien) A really attractive, lifted style on the nose here, with a touch of bright cherry and cranberry fruit. It has a crunchy but ripe character that I really admire. The style is firm, elegant and crisply framed, with less depth of texture and substance than some but there is still plenty of material here. There is ripeness and a good defining acidity. Nice style.
