Opening fairly toasty with a bit of green herb and bell pepper right up front before settling into a slightly roasted, tarry blackberry vein with notes of vanilla, buttery oak, and fudge under the roasted meat and herb notes. This is fairly full bodied with a big pop of sweet fruit on the attack. Opulent and round with blackberry and cassis fruit and quite some tannins as well as balancing acidity. The finish reveals a bit of earth and licorice as well as black spice and cigar ash before a final note of toasty oak. The oak is a bit more than I would like but the fruit should support it well.

From half-bottle. Nose: red fruit (blackcurrant), spice, pencil lead, earthy, smoky, some greenness. Palate: blackcurrant, spice, earthy, pencil lead, some greenness/capsicum notes. Smooth, elegant tannins; moderate fresh underlying acidity. Elegant, restrained Bordeaux.

Balanced dark fruits on the nose, consolidating into blackcurrent in the mouth. Some almond, too, on the nose, perhaps. Lovely velveteen texture which seems to thin in the mouth with food. Hint of mint? Delicious and a good companion to a medium-rare sirloin with Dauphinoise potatoes and green vegetables. Yum.

Large fruit. High mineral content makes for Crunchy wine. Elegant wine. Large and leggy tannins that linger on the tongue. Smoky and cherry with touches of cranberry. Lots of lovely tannins on the finish even drinking the wine in 2012.

Aromas of currants, berries, licorice and spice. Full-bodied and very velvety, with wonderful, high quality tannins. Long finish. Balanced and classy. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Lagrange St Julien 1500ml

This second Château Lagrange wine, more simple and accessible in all aspects, has nevertheless taken full advantage of the excellent care afforded to the great vintage. Ready for drinking earlier, it presents all the main characteristics of the estate in.

Feines Cassis- und Vanillearoma, sowie etwas Zedernholz. Kaffee- und Minzearomen, seidiges Gefüge, in welchem die Fruchtaromen harmonisch integriert sind. Geradlinig, herb und fest.

Already well-known in the middle Ages under the name of Maison Noble de Lagrange Monteil, Chateau Lagrange is located in the Saint-Julien appellation. The estate currently covers 157 hectares of land, of which 115 are under vine, in a single block. The vineyard is planted on two Gunzian gravel rises. Production methods combine the best of traditional and modern methods. Vine density per hectare is high and the soil is cultivated in the classic Medoc manner. The grapes are handpicked and sorted prior to crushing. Traditional Bordeaux winemaking procedures are used and fermentation lakes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. The wine is aged in oak barrels (of which 60% are new every year) in an air conditioned cellar.
