Wine Enthusiast 92 points - A dark, dry, brooding wine, which has flavors of blackberries and red plum skins, which is not at all dominated by wood. This is a classic wine, with Saint-Julien's elegance and 2003's power. Imported by Diageo Chateau & Estates.
Wine Advocate 91 points - Dense purple in color and surprisingly open-knit and velvety textured, the full-bodied, fleshy, succulently styled 2003 Lagrange is more accessible than most Northern Medocs. With low acidity, silky tannin, and loads of chocolatey black currant and cherry fruit as well as nicely integrated, toasty oak, this sensual wine should drink beautifully in 2-3 years and last for 15-18.

Wine Advocate 91 points - This fruity, floral, fragrant Lagrange reveals less oak than usual. Medium-bodied and spicy, with excellent depth, and a fleshy, round mouthfeel, it is a richly fruity, forward, deep example that will undoubtedly firm up as it evolves in barrel and bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018. (Apr 2004)
