Château Lagrange St.-Julien 2010
"A wine, with very pretty balance and length already. Full body, with a wonderful core of ripe fruit and a persistent silky finish. Lasts for a long time. Dense…94-95." JS 03/11. "Saturated medium ruby. Sexy aromas of cassis, licorice, menthol and cedar. Tightly wound, classic and intense, with sharply delineated flavors of dark berries, violet and minerals complemented by well-integrated oak. Dense, suave Saint-Julien wine with a very fresh, slightly austere finish. With its solid structure and excellent length, this will require at least five or six years of cellaring. A superb vintage for this property...92" IWC 07/12

Alex Shaw. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Lagrange St Julien 1500ml
75% cabernet sauvignon 25% merlot. 60% new oak barrels. Lagrange has been undergoing significant upgrades over the last several years including the addition of optical sorters more precise fermenting of individual plots from the vineyard and most significantly a reduction in the size of the tanks from 200+ hectoliters to an average of 80-120hl. These technical upgrades really show themselves with a fantastic wine for 2010. Beautiful bright fruit of blueberry and blackberry appear on the nose with subtle yet captivating notes of eucalyptus and toast. The plentiful tannins are fine and precise giving the wine nice texture that is enticing even out of barrel but will take more time to integrate. Tremendously long the fruit lingered for seemingly minutes and kept me coming back for more. This is among the top releases ever from this estate. Drink 2018-2035. Alex Shaw.
Bright ruby-red. Brooding aromas of blackberry cassis and licorice. Backward and youthfully medicinal but already shows lovely floral lift--to to mention ripe framing acidity--to its dark berry menthol and licorice flavors. A bit strict today and in need of several years of bottle aging but the firm tannins are ultimately rather velvety. 90+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
Lagrange is a powerful and packed with ripe dark berries and cassis. This concentrated coca and ripe berry flavored wine offers freshness and a licorice cassis filled finish. Jeff Leve.
