Slightly pinched and compact, the 2011 Lagrange exhibits a healthy dark ruby/plum color as well as notes of vanillin, black cherries and red fruits, but it is somewhat one-dimensional and straightforward. Solidly made, but not as expressive as some of its peers, it will benefit from 1-3 years of bottle age, and should keep for 10-12 thereafter. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

The Chateau Lagrange 2011 is a blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot (the highest percentage of the latter since 2007.) In 2011, there were just four treatments in the vineyard compared to 12 in 2000. It has a deep purple colour. It has a very pure bouquet with blackberry, cassis, limestone and a touch of Margaux-like violets. It certainly has fine delineation. The palate is pure with silky smooth tannins, fine acidity and an almost Burgundy-like texture. This is a very accomplished Lagrange although I would like to see more personality. It shows good weight on the tensile finish however and is an accomplished Saint Julien. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

A wine with mineral and blueberry character with hints of sandalwood. Medium body, with firm tannins and a medium finish. Balanced for the vintage but needs a little more depth. jamessuckling.com

Supple, with a nice creamy feel to the plum, fig and blackberry flavors. A light stony edge lends some additional length and definition on the finish. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Mid purplish crimson. Solid, fragrant, essence of Médoc. This property always seems relatively underpriced to me. Racy and sleek. Tannins very well managed. jancisrobinson.com

Good depth of blackcurrant fruit, quite open style, but will gain complexity. Drink 2015-2024. Decanter.com

Lovely bright blackcurrant nose. Classic and restrained and with a nice core of creamy fruit. Nothing dusty or dry at the end. A very solid effort and underlines the strength of St Julien in this vintage.
