In twenty-eight years I have never tasted a Lagrange as amazing as this 2005. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by pure notes of creme de cassis cedar spice box and a hint of cherries. Full-bodied powerful and opulent with high tannin as well as extract in addition to great freshness definition and length this long-lived beauty should be at its finest between 2012-2030.</P>

Aromas of currants berries licorice and spice. Full-bodied and very velvety with wonderful high quality tannins. Long finish. Balanced and classy.

The Château Lagrange 2005 has an intense bouquet with cedar and graphite infusing the black fruit, nicely controlled and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin, well-judged acidity and a slightly reserved but delineated finish: dried herbs, cedar and a dash of white pepper sprinkled over the black fruit. This excellent Lagrange has to be one of the most consistently satisfying wines from the appellation. Another year, another satisfying Lagrange.

Brooding aromas of cassis menthol chocolate and espresso. Dense and sweet but juicy with a floral nuance and nicely integrated acidity lending precision to the dark fruit and violet flavors. There's a medicinal austerity here but the fruit is unusually glossy and sweet for a young Lagrange showing more early personality than usual. Finishes with lovely breadth and persistence. An excellent early showing. 89-92 points
