1985 Château Lagrange (St. Julien)

Community Tasting Note


90 Points

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 - Bright garnet in the glass, evident bricking. Delicious nose of polished antique furniture, soy-sauce, dried cherries, cigarbox and mixed spices. In the mouth this is medium bodied and classically structured. Completely mature, of course. No tannines left. Still quite fresh and showing good complexity through interesting notes of cinnamon, cloves, damp earth, wet barrels, sweet plums. At the end of the evening, hints of iron and dried blood turned up. This is best drunk at the table next to a light, but hearty meal, and served just beneath room temperature. 17.5/20
