Lovely bottle, one of my favorite affordables of this vintage. I won't even describe the flavor profile, this is simply great Bordeaux and the next thing you know the bottle is empty. I'll try to take better notes next time. $40 (now $60)/ 93 points WKH

Nice bouquet. Worthy of the great French Bordeaux which of course, it is one. A little lighter than the California Cabernets but I think Bordeaux wines are suppose to be like that.

The '03 is rich, and full bodied, soft tannins, lots of red fruit and very youthful. Not going to be a tremendous ager (very soft), probably, but I'll still like it better in a few years.

Good red-ruby. Captivating aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, cedar, coffee and mocha. Sweet, silky and lush, but given shape by firm underlying minerality. Wonderfully round wine with palate-saturating flavor. Finishes with major toothcoating tannins. This is developing very well in barrel.

Lots of floral, berry and raspberry character on the nose. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a fresh finish. Lovely wine. Round and refined. Best after 2006.

Good ruby-red. considerably less saturated than the 2000. Sexy, sweet aromas of black plum, black raspberry and flowers; smells more like Merlot, while the 2000 is more Cabernet. Juicy and suave in the mouth, with subtle but intense flavors nicely firmed by juicy acids. Classy, impeccably balanced wine with very fine-grained tannins. While this is not all hard today, it really should be given ten years in the cellar.

Bright ruby-red. Brisk aromas of currant, cedar and minerals. Firmly built, complex and aromatic, with lovely flavor definition and excellent palate coverage. Finishes with mouthcoating tannins and very good length. An excellent vintage for Lagrange.

Pretty aromas of blackberries and currants, with hints of lead pencil. Full-bodied, yet very balanced, with a solid core of fruit and ultrafine tannins. Really well-crafted wine. Lagrange often excels in less than easy vintages, like 2002. Excellent. Best after 2008.

This impeccably run, Japanese-owned property has fashioned a superb 1996. Opaque purple-colored, with a backward yet promising nose of classically pure cassis intermixed with pain grilleacute; and spice, this medium to full-bodied, powerful yet stylish wine possesses superb purity, a nicely-layered feel in the mouth and plenty of structure. It will not be an early-drinking St.-Julien, but one to lay away and enjoy over the next 2ndash;3 decades. Anticipated maturity: 2006ndash;2022.

A dark, dry, brooding wine, which has flavors of blackberries and red plum skins, which is not at all dominated by wood. This is a classic wine, with Saint-Julienrsquo;s elegance and 2003rsquo;s power.
