Château Larmande 1986 - Saint-Emilion

Château Larmande is a 25-hectare wine estate historically classified as Grand Cru of Saint-Émilion. We can find the first traces of its existence in 1569. This makes it one of the oldest Bordeaux wine estates.

It is the neighbor of Château Soutard which also belongs to the same owner, the La Mondiale Grand Cru group. The vineyard is mainly composed of old sand with smaller portions of clay-limestone and siliceous clay in the soil.

The blend and grape varieties of the vineyard are quite classic with 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.Vinification takes place in stainless steel vats before aging in French oak barrels in approximately 60% new wood and in amphorae for 18 months.Around 70,000 bottles of Château Larmande are produced each year making a small production for the region.

This 1986 vintage seems to receive many laudatory comments from online tasters who praise its excellent price/pleasure ratio. We have not yet had the opportunity to taste this bottle but we should do so in the coming weeks.

Exceptional provenance in OWC: These bottles come from a cellar of a great Swiss enthusiast and collector. We have acquired the complete collection containing more than 200 bottles of mainly French and Italian wines. The bottles were all preserved following their purchase en primeur or shortly after their marketing on site, in a natural cellar buried under a 16th century convent. A damp cellar, which is why some labels are very worn. The levels are generally excellent or perfect and the most "fragile" bottles demonstrate storage in total darkness for more than 30 years!
