Lot size: 1 bottle of 750 ml each Wine type: Red, 1986 vintage
Tax status: Duty PaidQuestion Mark Origin: St-Julien, Bordeaux, France
Fill level: Into Neck (IN)Question Mark Grape variety: Bordeaux Blend

A good looking bottle with clean and complete label and capsule. The level is just into the neck.

Here is a classic example of a wine that is showing significantly more complexity and richness from the bottle than out of cask, although it was a potentially outstanding wine when tasted from barrel. In a vintage that produced a number of enormously structured, rich, concentrated wines, Lagrange is another of the blockbuster wines that seem capable of lasting 30-35 years. Black/ruby in colour, with a closed but burgeoning bouquet of spicy new oak, black fruits, and flowers, this muscular, full-bodied, tannic wine is packed with fruit and is clearly one of the great long-distance runners from the vintage. I admire how the significant investment made by the Japanese owners in this property has paid off with a thrilling, albeit amazingly backward wine. The finest Lagrange to date! Anticipated maturity: now-2025. Last tasted, January 1997.
