Un St-Julien très sérieux. Pas tout à fait prêt à mon avis. Amertume d'amande verte en finale qui demande encore du temps pour s'estomper. Sinon, c'est du gros jus qui récompensera les plus patients dans 4,5 ans... Potentiel pour 91, 92 points
Clear ruby. Warm inviting nose with evolving notes of roses, cedar, blackberry, graphite and chocolate. On the palate a wide acid frame around a pure fruit core, fragrant afternotes. Long tannic finish. 50 + 17 + 16 + 8.

(Chateau Lagrange (St Julien)) A sweet, modern style of fruit here, fresh and bright, red and black summer fruit compote. It seems to possess polish and substance although on entry it has its texture tightly reined in. Through the midpalate it expands though, becoming more like the nose suggests, more polished and very lightly creamy. Well judged, with rather a firm tannic substance to it although it works well with the fruit and acids. With time in the cellar this could be very good.
(Chateau Lagrange St Julien) Dense, sweet, with concentrated ripe fruit. The palate has a very ripe and detached style, mineral and fresh. Fairly bright and lively, with good vivacity. Less supple than some, but with good substance, nice acidity and appropriate tannins. Very good potential.
