    April 23, 2019 - Similar to other 06 Bordeuax's, it is a little thin on the palate. Otherwise, really good flavors.

    March 30, 2019 - Interesting bottle. Very smooth. A lot of secondaries, but really quite fruity - ripe but not sweet red berry fruit. Very smooth. Well balanced.

    October 25, 2018 - Decanted 2 hours. Solid wine, with dark fruits, concentrated, and tannins showing but drinkable now. Still needs time to mellow and show some secondaries. B+/A-

    September 26, 2018 - This has developed well since I had it las two years ago. Still young with red currants on the nose. It has gained complexity on the palate though, more black currants and cherry flavours. Fairly light in body but with good intensity on mid-palate and through a fairly long finish. Tannins are largely resolved, good acidity. Should last several more years.

    (Chateau Lagrange (St Julien)) A nice layer of sweet fruit here, with a little element of sweet, crumble-pastry to it suggesting residual oak. Overall rather appealing. The palate has a very soft presence, polished and with a touch of oiliness to it, although with a firm core of tannins at its centre, and fresh acidity to it as well. Good well-defined fruit on the finish, and quite long with desirable grip here. A good showing but quite disparate on the palate at present - will need to come together.

    (Chateau Lagrange St Julien) Creamy vanilla and blackberry on the nose, with a sweet, crumbly, buttery oak element. A very supple palate, quite stylish, with a ripe character and gentle grip beneath. Very well composed, with ripe tannins and nice acidity. This has really fleshed out since my first tasting. A good sweetness to the fruit too.

    (Chateau Lagrange St Julien) Quite open on the nose, sweet fruit, nice freshness. Rounded, lots of tannin, moderate texture, but not really enough flesh for me. Nice acidity, some good fruit. It is lively but lacks substance. Good.
