95 St. Julien

1995 Chateau Lagrange St. Julien ($50)
ChlagrangeClear, deep garnet fading to a brick red rim. Some sediment in the wine indicating some age. Clean, with an intense, developing nose of cedar, earth, black currants, spice. Dry, with medium acidity and medium-high, still somewhat drying tannins. Full bodied, with an intense palate of black pepper, black currants, mint, cedar and earth. Medium alcohol and long length. An excellent quality cabernet-based Bordeaux showing maturity. As fruit is still persistent on the finish of this firm, structure-driven wine, it will age well and tannins will soften even more over the next 5-10 years.
