    (Chateau Lagrange St Julien) I find attractive aromas on the nose here, which has a good presence of rounded fruit lifted by notes of liquorice and spicy complexity. It shows freshness and light rather than intensity. At the start it is light, and maintains a rather lean presence on the palate throughout, showing in quite a firm fashion without a great deal of rich concentration. Today it seems to be showing more structure than flavour or aroma, and it is a little less well composed in the mouth. I have enjoyed previous bottles of this wine more than this one. Nevertheless there are good qualities here which are evident on tasting. A good effort for a lesser vintage.

    (Chateau Lagrange St Julien) This has a lovely style, showing a very attractive, open nose with plentiful fruit. It has a well rounded, well composed complete style on the palate, with some really bright, fresh acidity. Nicely spiced, with a little complexity. This is really rather stylish, with a good presence of fruit, and in the context of the vintage is really very impressive.

    (Chateau Lagrange St Julien) A quite glossy hue, with an appealing, minerally, stony, black fruit character on the nose. There are emerging notes of complexity too. Elegant and floral on the palate, softly structured, with a nice, supple, ripe tannic backbone. Good acidity. A very attractive drinking wine, with a reserved style I appreciate, quite approachable now, but will improve.
