International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 116

(includes 76% cabernet sauvignon, the highest percentage ever at Lagrange) Deep, saturated bright ruby-purple. Brooding aromas of cassis, violet and cedar ("hibernating now," says Ducasse). Very densely packed but very closed and extremely backward. Nearly painful flavors of black fruits, violet and menthol. Finishes very firm and very long, with powerful tannins supported by the wine's flesh. Forget this wine until 2015. The petit verdot was left out of the blend, notes Ducasse, "because it was too strong, too muscular, not elegant. " Only time will tell if this wine surpasses the 1996.

Mid crimson. Attractive scent and development on the nose. Well balanced and well judged - neat - even if not a blockbuster. Quite introvert but confident with great balance. No hurry to drink.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 146

An impressive performance by Lagrange, the 2000 possesses a saturated ruby/purple color with obvious notes of melted licorice, creme de cassis, and toasty new oak. This ripe, dense, full-bodied St.-Julien is chewy, thick, high in tannin, large-bodied, and impressively long and dense. As always, it is less expressive than some of its peers, but it is loaded as well as reasonably priced.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Extremely well-done. Beautifully aromatic, with coffee, cedar and blackberries on the nose. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a mineral, blackberry aftertaste with medium fine tannins. I haven't had a Lagrange of this quality in years. 25,000 cases made.

Opaque, deep purple with brickish rim variation and long legs. Clean,reticent bouquet of cassis, cedar and mineral. Dry intense palate of stewed cherries, blackberry and fig. Moderate ETOH with dense tannins and long powerful finish. Could age for years and years.

Still too early; good deep purple color but still too tannic even after decanting; after two days in the decanter, the tannins mellowed but some of the fruit gone at that point; very cherry, dried stone fruits, cherry cider, somewhat piney
