2001 Lagrange, St-Julien

SKU #1009192 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted blind at Bordeaux Index’s 10-Year On horizontal. The Lagrange ’01 is your quintessential Saint Julien wine with blackberry, cedar, cigar box and a touch of smoke. Very focused with great penetration. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, superb balanced with a superb cedar and tobacco tinged finish supported by ample red fruits. Great length, just a wine you want to drink (although it should keep for another decade.) Tasted March 2011. (NM) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Sexy, sweet aromas of black plum, black raspberry and flowers; smells more like merlot, while the 2000 is more cabernet. Juicy and suave in the mouth, with subtle but intense flavors nicely firmed by juicy acids. Classy, impeccably balanced wine with very fine-grained tannins. While this is not at all hard today, it really should be given ten years in the cellar. (ST) 90+ Inner quote mark (9/2004)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Lots of floral, berry and raspberry character on the nose. Medium- to full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a fresh finish. Lovely wine. Round and refined. *Smart Buys* (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2004)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Light but very complete nose. Absolutely classic claret with nothing out of place. All very succulent but dry rather than sweet. I can’t see how anyone could be disappointed by this, unless they didn’t understand red bordeaux at all. 17.5/20 Points (JR) Inner quote mark (3/2011)

K&L Notes

Chateau Lagrange is a 3rd Growth St. Julien owned by the Suntory group and comprising of 270 acres situated next to Gruaud Larose. The estate went through major improvements and huge investments through the 80s 90s and 2000s and now shows the amazing resurrection of the estate into the producer it always had potential to be.
