    October 19, 2020 - Superb right now. Classic Lagrange nose, but subtle and refined feel on the palate.

    March 3, 2020 - Not in balance at all. The fruit is OK, but disturbing green, harsh tones in the finish totally ruin the overall impression. Keeping in mind that this second wine of Lagrange can be excellent (like the legendary 1996), this was a huge disappointment, especially when considering the vintage.

    May 10, 2019 - A solid performance but still lacking the wow factor. It is holding up well at 14 and feels as if it will go for a few more years yet. The fruit is a bit muted and the cedar and leather notes are quite evident. The alcohol is noticeable but not too hot. Last bottle.

    April 28, 2019 - Kept for 5 years under condition 2, for the last 7 years under condition 1 (see my profile). Color: clear red-purple with a small orange rim. At the second day nose and taste were more open than on the first one. Nose: red fruit, rather subdued. Taste: red berries and blackberries, a bit of sous bois and cedar with a nice amount of oak and a good acidity. The tannins were almost resolved. Best with food, on its own the alcohol was a bit to prominent for me. After two lesser bottles, this was nice again. 88-89.

    March 20, 2019 - 6/12.
    Medium/deep garnet core, pale garnet rim. Attractive, lightly smoky, minerally red and black fruits. Medium bodied, again smoky red and black fruit on the palate, fresh, savoury acidity, quite good depth, slightly firm tannin on the good length finish. VGI, drinking well.
