Somewhat of a beast, this monolithic, oaky wine is full-bodied, highly extracted and difficult to evaluate. Some hints of roasted herbs, chocolate, black currant and coffee are present, but the oak dominates, as do the tannins. This wine seems much woodier, and more closed and foreboding than any other St. Julien I tasted. Forget it for 7-8 years and hope for the best. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

Tasted at the chateau, the crop was picked between 29th September and 20th October, with much of the crop (the Cabernet) picked between 13th and 19th October. A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Merlot, this is a very tightly wound on the nose, the Cabernet Sauvignon imparting a strictness and tautness: blackberry, wild hedgerow, cedar and a touch of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, a real sense of symmetry here with fine acidity. Very refined tannins and yet there is certainly great structure cloaked beneath that pure blackberry, cassis and cedar-infused fruit. Long in the mouth on the finish that is slightly drier than the 2009 when compared alongside. This is an outstanding Saint Julien from one of its most consistent performers in recent years. Tasted March 2011. Neal Martin, erobertparker.com

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. jamessuckling.com

This is precise, with pure, unadorned cassis, blackberry and black cherry fruit flavors woven with toasty vanilla and anise. Offers a lovely, rounded feel, despite its obvious weight. Very long. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Headily perfumed. Sweetly charming on the front palate and then it segues into structured chew. Real vitality here. Very cool and dry on the end – not succulent at this stage! jancisrobinson.com

Fine expression of Cabernet fruit, elegant, less robust than many, but very good texture and depth. Drink 2018-30. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

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.winecellarinsider.com

This is a well made St Julien with nice palate texture and weight with good depth of fruit. Flavours range from fresh blackberries, spices, cedar and Chinese red dates. The nose is restrained but the palate is generous with a nice length. asianpalate.com

Very black fruit on the nose, dark chocolate. firmly tannic, but again the fruit underneath is excellent.
