    (Château Lagrange (St Julien)) There is something quite enticing about the fruit aromatics here; there is a bright and open perfume to them that is undoubtedly appealing. And unlike many of the wines tasted here this is unhindered by a liberal application of oak. The palate is fresh and perhaps does not have the weight of many other wines. There is a substance and depth hinted at towards the finish, but otherwise it remains very finely polished but perhaps lacking a little in grit and texture. I think it is the flesh of the vintage more than anything else, and it should come good given time. There is certainly a grippy structure in the finish to suggest this, giving it a long and masculine finish.

    (Chateau Lagrange St Julien) A very dark, crimson-black rim. Sweet fruit on the nose, all damsons and cherries, partly macerated in alcohol. Creamed fruit on the palate, very well composed, with lovely acidity too. It has a very fresh bite to it, welcome in view of the exuberant fruit. Well covered tannins, slightly savoury, fresh, yet intensely rich and really quite spicy. An attractive wine, although off the wall for the classicists I would think.
