International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

($70-$75) Medium red-ruby. Reticent but sweet nose offers plum, black cherry, minerals and bitter chocolate. Thick and powerful but with excellent vinosity and sweetness as well as a slightly exotic character to the red fruit and spice flavors. Deep, slow-mounting wine that builds impressively on the back end. The tannins here make those of the 2006 seem a bit rigid by comparison. I was struck by the thought that Lagrange has done consistently well in the last three vintages, and that each effort is an accurate reflection of its year.

This was the first vintage in which they used mostly Cabernet Sauvignon. Sweet and raw and very callow but there is so much here! Too early really to judge this wine. It seems to have so much raw material to work with.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 176

Sweet, toasty, oaky notes interwoven with hints of black olives, blackberries, cassis, and spice box are found in this densely saturated ruby/purple-hued 2005. While rich, with impressive concentration and purity, it is also tannic, full-bodied, and painfully backward and foreboding. This is another long-term prospect that will require patience.

Wine Spectator Author: James Suckling

Currant, mineral, plum and light toasty oak follow through to a full body, with ultrasilky tannins and a long, caressing finish. This is thoroughly beautiful. Superbalanced and very pretty. 24,165 cases made.

This wine is in prime form right now. Black currants, blackberries and a hint of spice. The tannins have mellowed but the fruit still shows through. Wonderfully expressing itself.

Purple in color. A little dry with tacky stiff tannins. High solid acid and deep purple fruit. Clean and somewhat closed still with a long finish and some nice herb and tobacco. Silky. Will only get better with a couple more years.

The perennial 'value Chateau of St. Julien? has crept up in price a bit, but w/ the hike in tariff, there?s some exceptional quality to be found. Perhaps the finest 21st century Lagrange, almost flamboyantly earthy, as notions of wild flowers, sweet tobacco, roasted chestnuts, loam and chocolaty black currants scintillate my senses from just about every angle. This wine?s young complexity is astounding to me, as is its symmetry, length and purity. 2005 is another winner from Lagrange, just a flat out wonderful wine
