Tasting Notes

Score: 93Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book (4), December 2003

An impressive performance by Lagrange, the 2000 possesses a saturated ruby/purple color with obvious notes of melted licorice, creme de cassis, and toasty new oak. This ripe, dense, full-bodied St.-Julien is chewy, thick, high in tannin, large-bodied, and impressively long and dense. As always, it is less expressive than some of its peers, but it is loaded as well as reasonably priced. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030.

Score: 93Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (146), April 2003

The most impressive Lagrange produced in over a decade, the 2000 exhibits an opaque purple color along with a big, smoky nose of new oak intermixed with creme de cassis, cherries, saddle leather, and spice. With medium to full body, high tannin, and impressive richness as well as length, it will be at its finest between 2008-2025.

Score: 91/93Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (139), February 2002

While 2000 is unquestionably a great vintage for St.-Julien, on the two occasions I tasted Lagrange, it was dominated by its wood, and was a bit disjointed. It possesses a saturated ruby/purple color as well as plenty of earth and new oak in the aromatics, a touch of chocolate on the attack, medium body, high tannin, and a jagged finish. This wine is undoubtedly excellent, but will it come together in a more symmetrical manner? Anticipated maturity: 2004-2016.
