1986 Château Lagrange (St. Julien) Red Bordeaux Blend

Hello ladies and gents, I'm afraid to tell you that the wine isn't ready for business!! A little tight and closed on the palate, still working its way out, very dark and opaque in colour! Rather muted nose of sweet, nutty black fruits! Along with a little touch of game! Certainly a fifty years wine in my book!

My bottle is slightly aged, so, quite yellowy in colour, intense nose of white stone fruits and equally intense stone white fruits palate! Impressive!

2000 Château d'Angludet Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend

Deep ruby in colour! Nearly purple! Pop and pour! This is amazing! Nose of strong black currant flavor an a hint of red fruits in between! After breathing for twenty minutes, it slowly becoming more mineral but still very dark fruits driven! Smooth thick palate, almost meaty texture! Mouthful of dark fruits, minerals and a little bubble gum finish! Very impressive if I'm honest! Again from a remarkable vintage in the Bordeaux region! Singing right now but still can keep for another five years very very easily or possibly longer!

I have to agree with you we all a little bit surprised by it's performance! But it is that good that evening! Of course this sort of impression is very personal, you don't have to agree with me! Have a good week sir!

Please consider I only had only one glass, so note that I can't study the evolution of the wine over the night! Deep deep purple, huge structure, lots...lots of fruit! But I really admire the structure of the wine! No doubt....promising future ahead! Guess it will have at least 25 years of life! Possibly longer!
