Grand Cru Classe Medoc
Special Offer | Was £89.95 | Now £49.95
From the good 1988 vintage and scoring 85/100 Parker points, "La Lagune's 1988 has a streak of herbaceousness, and tart, aggressive tannins that appear to have the upper hand in the wine's balance. Medium-bodied, spicy, and straightforward, it lacks the flesh and chewy opulence of top vintages of La Lagune, but it should prove to be long-lived. "Drink now - 2023.

Margaux (heavy bin soiled labels0
The 1988 Château Labégorce-Zédé displays a clear medium intensity ruby red colour slowly turning into garnet. It reveals a maturing nose of tobacco, dark fruit and an herbal note. The palate is spicy with vanilla tones, high tannin, medium acidity and medium length. A nice claret.

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe,
1988 produced richly coloured Cabernet and Merlot wines, that are tannic and powerfully structured. A great vintage, gorgeously seductive and remains the most complex wine of this Century, the quintessence of Lafite-Rothschild.
This deeply colored wine exhibits the telltale Lafite bouquet of cedar, subtle herbs, dried pit fruits,minerals, and cassis. Extremely concentrated, with brillantly focused flavors and huge tannins, this backward yet impressively endowed Lsfite Rothschild may well turn out to be the wine of the vintage. Anticipated maturity:2000-2035

St Emilion Grand Cru
Still a beautiful and vibrant wine after 30 years. Definitely does not disappoint and shows little signs of age. '89 is a great vintage and still shines well here. Traditional French style with lower 13% alcohol. It has quite a bit of life left in it.

Margaux 2nd Growth Classification
A beautiful example. On opening a beautiful cedar bouquet, but subdued in the mouth; after a couple of hours in the decanter this is really singing, still some red fruit, some meat, and that classic mature Bordeaux feel. Cellar Tracker Review.

St Emilion Grand Cru Classe
***92 Points, Robert Parker***
A sleeper vintage for proprietor Mitjavile’s beloved Tertre Roteboeuf, the 1988 has a deep plum/garnet color and a gorgeous nose of earth, underbrush, cherry cough syrup, licorice, and caramel. It is full-bodied, very pure, ripe, with loads of concentration, yet good definition and structure. No, it is not as dense as the 1989 nor as flamboyant and flashy as the 1990, but this is a classic Tertre Roteboeuf that should continue to drink well for a few more years.

Pauillac 5me Cru Classe
*** 92 Parker Points ***
One of the big surprises is how delicious this wine has turned out. It is a beautiful, classic claret. Dark ruby-colored with purple hues, it reveals aromas of dried herbs, smoke, leather, grilled meats, and copious black cherry and currant fruit. Medium-bodied, powerful, rich, and surprisingly evolved, this vintage has now hit its plateau of maturity.

Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe
*** 89 Points Wine Journal ***
"Slight aging on rim. A rich nose of minerals and blackcurrant. Medium-bodied with classic Mouton style. This has more fleshy fruit than other Firsts: quite rounded blackberry and tar. Very Cabernet dominated with a little more expression that Lafite 1988. A classic claret in every sense." Neil Martin
