    July 30, 2017 - Lovely big vanilla and blackcurrant nose on opening the bottle. Still very tannic and a touch too much bitterness on the finish for my liking. Average/ good length on the finish. Should come good and score should improve in time but currently in an awkward gawky phase, so I'll wait 2 years before trying another. I liked the 2016 so much from barrel sample I got it in halves, bottles and magnums - its that big a step up in quality from any previous Lagrange.

    July 4, 2017 - Outstanding wine... Best modern Lagrange I've ever tasted. Knockout 2010! QPR is terrific...! As for the taste, classic Bordeaux nose, structure and finesse... Finish is delicious dark red fruits dominate throughout, highly complex and well integrated wine... In an exceptional place right now, i'm sure it will improve with age, but no need to wait... If you want exceptional St. Julien now - here is your chance! Can't wait to compare to the 2014s - which are half the price!

    June 28, 2017 - 75CS, 25M.
    Lots of peppermint, fresh but with present tannin on the palate. A hint of lovely barnyard. So fresh!

    May 25, 2017 - Eðalklúbbur, wine tasting #5 spring 2017 (Marbakkabraut 12): Ruby coloured, dark core. Very fresh bouquet, rather delicate. White flowers, cut grass, smoke, black pepper. Fresh acid, round and supple tannins. Medium to full bodied. Dark fruit, plums, black cherries. This is too young. Should be exquisite in 4 to 5 years.

    (Château Lagrange (St. Julien)) Very dark purple red violet color; appealing, herbaceous, menthol, deep black fruit nose; ripe black currant, menthol, tart plum palate; medium-plus finish (75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot)

    (Chateau Lagrange (St Julien)) This is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot. Following on from Gruaud this sample does not seem so expressive on the nose at first, despite the wine's vibrant crimson appearance. Given time in the glass though it soon reveals some light, pretty, perfumed fruit with a floral edge. Rather a touch of cream at the start on the palate, with a supple and slightly fat feel to it in the middle, with charcoaly-grainy tannins coming in here. There is just a light chew to the finish, with a lot of fruit here, and a grippy length too. Another very good effort from Lagrange, one of the new darlings of the commune I think.
