La Lagune 08
Going myself for La Lagune 2008 - drinking nicely with notes of tobacco and blackcurrant / cassis. How was the Montrose 90? Looking at the picture of the pouring in the glasses, it seems to have been fresh and not having too much of this brick color that ...
Thanks for sharing with me that photo of your 08 La Lagune. The 90 Montrose was drinking very well. The color was predominantly medium garnet core that faded towards a brick red rim. Acid remained fresh (quite spectacular) with medium alcohol and tannins ...
Thanks for the very details tasting notes - very intriguing, especially the long and multilayered after-taste. I am slowly developing an affinity for older wines, even though I like so much the freshness and (tannic) structure of younger clarets - especia...

you can't go wrong with '82s,unless they're corked Unfortunately,no more '82 Montrose left,but other clarets like '89 and your '90,apart from the first growths, are very approachable now. Best henry
Fully agree Henry
My experience with Bordeaux dictates that all 3 vintages (82,89,90) are fantastic. But the vintage for me that tops it all is the 90 — for most producers anyway. Haut Brion, Margaux, Lynch Bages, Palmer, Las Cases etc. 90 just tops it slightly above the 8...
Looking forward to your next post Bill…. Best Gatsby
