WS 96
Wine Spectator, January 2019
(93-96 points) The intense cassis and blackberry fruit is studded with graphite and licorice snap notes. Vivid from start to finish. Grippy but energetic. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now.- JM

(93–95) Barrel Sample. This is a dense wine with a balanced character that shows both richness and freshness. Its tannins are firm but are equaled by the fine black currant flavor and lively acidity.

Full-bodied and jam-packed with black fruits and earthy accents, it has a solid frame of firm, chunky tannins and just enough freshness, finishing on a persistent mineral note.- LPB

The wine is full-bodied, round, ripe and loaded with tobacco, black currant, herbs, leaf, espresso, boysenberry and floral aromatics. With its concentration and depth of flavor 2018 is -- without a doubt --the best wine ever produced here. The wine will age for decades with ease.

Bold, plush and beautifully resonant in the glass, the 2018 possesses tremendous richness and textural intensity. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, espresso, mint and licorice build in a racy, sumptuous Lagrange loaded with personality. The 2018 is one of the best recent vintages I have tasted. Tasted two times.- AG

(93-94) This is a very velvety-textured Lagrange with blackberry and purple-fruit character. Lavender and black-tea undertones. Full body. Long and caressing.

It's closed in and tight on the nose with slightly reductive notes, but it opens up after a few minutes to reveal another good quality St-Julien. A serious wine, it has well structured walls and a moat around the cassis fruit. It's not quite at the level of 2010 but is halfway there, making you stop and think before its gentle power takes over.

It has a plush and generous bouquet with blueberry and black cherry fruit, a touch of clove and menthol developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and very pure fruit. This has a Burgundy-like allure and though there is some new oak dominating the finish, there is sufficient fruit to support that. This is potentially a very lovely Lagrange, one that I suspect will drink sooner than other recent vintages. (3.53pH, 14.6% alcohol) -- Neal Martin

This is a fairly savoury and masculine take on the vintage, as the Moueix wines often are - they fly in their own universe and make wines with real impact and longevity.
