Mmm, this was tasty. Immediate black licorice (anise?) on the nose. Lets of fruit today. Tannin coated my teeth. Good structure. This was my favorite of the tasting.
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.
External Reviews for Château Lagrange St.-Julien
Aromas of blackberry and currant with just a hint of black licorice follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and subtle ripe fruit, giving licorice and mineral undertones. Complex and refined. Very well done. Best after 2011. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Lagrange St Julien 750ml
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.
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: 2010ndash;2030.
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.
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.
Extremely well-done. Beautifully aromatic, with coffee, cedar and blackberries on the nose. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a mineral, blackberry aftertaste with medium fine tannins. I havenrsquo;t had a Lagrange of this quality in years. Best after 2010.
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.
