    November 12, 2017 - Dinner at the Papies (The Papies, Elizabeth St, London): Played the role of cellar defender so was decanted and served.
    On the young side still and will benefit from some more cellaring but still a very solid wine as with all Lagranges from good vintages.
    Dark fruit, light pepper, still very much primary and shows very little secondary feel. Keep to the beautiful 1996 for now and drink this 2001 in 3-4 years! 91 for now

  • Eudemis Likes this wine:

    October 21, 2017 - 13% alcohol. The good long dense cork is penetrated a quarter of the way, with one much deeper inroad. Decanted for an hour. The colour is very deep with hardly any sign of evolution.
    Deep mature nose with pure fruit (blackcurrant mostly) harmoniously flavoured by quality oak. The mouth is just as good, showing balance and energy, with excellent acidity in the finish. Fully resolved tannins are there only through the sense of grip that they impart.
    This is nearly opulent enough to pass for a Pauillac, while retaining all the elegance of St Julien. A perfect companion to our leg of lamb (is there a better combination out there ?). This is ready to drink, but there is certainly no rush to do so.
    A great success, and a repeat purchase.

  • Personal Opinion Likes this wine:

    October 11, 2017 - Enjoyed over 3 hours after opening. Aromas and flavors of lightly roasted coffee bean, graphite, pencil shavings, worn leather and black fruit skins dominate the profile with good integration. Medium bodied, medium acid, with noticeable dry, dusty tannins. Shorter, dry finish seems to be the biggest shortcoming of this wine. Paired well with filet. Typical 'Left Bank' Bordeaux stylings. Enjoyable, not amazing. Satisfies the itch for a typical, aged, slightly above average Bordeaux.

  • fc1910 Does not like this wine:

    May 20, 2017 - Some green paprika on the nose, cherry, starting still a little tannic and restrained, light to midbodied, lacking fruit and complexity, tart, more aeration is not changing a lot, ending a little harsh and unpleasant, this bottle leaves me a little helpless, *

    (Chateau Lagrange St Julien) This is slightly more aromatic than Les Fiefs from the same vintage, although it is predominantly the nutty and mocha aromas of youth. Quite balanced and elegant on the palate, with a gentle structure, showing some depth on the midpalate and finish. Not very expressive at the moment, but has potential. I think this will be drinking well in 2-3 years, perhaps a little longer. Very good.
