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 certainly a potentially outstanding wine when tasted from the barrel. In a vintage that produced a number of enormously structured rich concentrated wines Lagrange is a blockbuster wine that seems capable of lasting 30-35 years. Black/ruby in color 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 this 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: 2000-2025. Last tasted 1/97.
