The Lagrange 2009 has an earthy slightly introverted nose at the moment although it opens ajar with aeration with hints of lavender and crushed flower. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh citrus entry great delineation and a wonderful build of flavours on the mouth a subtle crescendo as it were. This is so very refined and classy. Tasted October 2011.

Ripe wine with soft tannins allied to great density. Weight and lovely juicy final fruit flavors meld together easily. This is solid dense impressive and for long-term aging.

Bright and perfumed with loads of blueberry flower and licorice on the nose. Full body with super well-integrated tannins and a long long finish. Class. Best wine from here in a long long time. Try after 2018.

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.

This has a solid core of juicy plum red currant and blackberry fruit that sits in reserve while mouthwatering briar and toasty spice notes move along the edges. Grippy and focused through the finish with well-embedded acidity. Best from 2013 through 2024. 22500 cases made. -JM

Tightly knit oaky and rich with formidable concentration but broodingly backward and not showing the charm and concentration of the top wines of St.-Julien this 2009 from Lagrange is still an outstanding effort that has length richness and character. It should be cellared for a good 5-6 years and then consumed over the following 25 years. 90+

The improvements over the last several years at Lagrange bear fruit in this vintage yielding what is undoubtedly the finest wine ever from this estate. Rigorous selection in the vineyards use of optical sorters in the cellar and the move to smaller tanks has produced a wine of stunning elegance and grace. Beautiful purple/red fruits are complemented by notes of cedar black licorice shitake mushrooms and just a hint of new French oak. Firm tannins offer structure to the wine and help carry the fruit through a long lingering finish. This is already an amazing wine and with lively acidity present it should only get better over the next several decades. With amazing terroir Lagrange can now take its rightful place amongst the finest wines of St. Julien.
