Château Lagrange Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

$125

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. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2030. Robert Parker

This was old world on the nose but cleaner (no Brett) with a very slight va that blew off quickly. Rich and mouth coating with a long finish. This was my WOTN

In a really nice spot right now. Very well integrated. Tannins in check. Drink and or hold for another 3 years

Nice classic-ish Bordeaux. Decanted for 1.5h. Overall just missing an extra level - either slightly restrained still, or perhaps past its prime. Lots of classic pepper and earth and subtle red fruit on the nose. Tannins are relatively integrated but perhaps very slightly “chunky”. Acid is there on the finish, which is decently long. Nice with grilled lamb kebabs. Overall solid but definitely underperformed expectations especially for an SJ (favorite left bank appellation).

This is a perfect Lagrange, love it. And still enough power inside.

Ok. Not great. Better than the ‘09, but not as good as the ‘86.

Wonderful year in Bordeaux. Took about 30 minutes in the decanter before dark fruits emerged. Dark cherry, earth and bramble ... Long smooth finish that lingers for 20-30 seconds
