1976 Ch. Lagrange 1976 Ch. Cos d'Estournel
12/3/08-The Wednesday Knitters enjoyed a comparison of two 1976 Bordeaux wines, a lesser known third growth wine (LaGrange) and a more expensive second growth wine (Cos d’Estournel). The Lagrange had not aged well with significant browning and hints of vinegar, whereas the Cos was still quite fruity, little browning and flavors of red cassis and coffee. All seemed to enjoy the Cos and Ann Vik preferred it over 6 fruity young wines for her dinner wine.
