Very rich, very fine attack - liquid-fresh, finer that silk, sweet, pure crème de fruits attack. Big, despite Marcel Ducasse’s stated aim of promoting elegance above all, ‘this is the limit of power that I like’, and still in balance. Very complete, no holes, a ball of relatively impenetrable fruit, there is a touch of oak on the nose, but otherwise the 60% new wood is not detectable, - and very long. L&S (Mar 2005)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

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. 2010-2030. Rating: 93 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com (Sep 2011)
