France

Château LARMANDE (a Great Classified Growth) is one of the oldest estates of SAINT EMILION. LARMANDE is a place-name which can be found in archives dating from 1585. These mention a visit by the Jurade to inspect the wine there. A stone in the cellar bears the date 1640. The owner at the beginning of the 18th century was called CHAMPAGNE. After he died, his widow continued production at the vineyard for a few years before it was taken over, first by the PION de CASE family, and then in about 1850 by the SAINT GENIS, who came from the Charente Maritime. This family kept the estate for around 50 years, leaving the management of it to Germain MENERET. At the beginning of the 20th century, for partition and inheritance reasons, the SAINT GENIS offered to sell the estate to Germain MENERET. Not having a large enough fortune to buy it outright, he went into partnership with one of his friends, Amédée CAPDEMOURLIN, who also came from a very old Saint EMILION family, in order to acquire the property.

  • If I were anywhere near New York on the 29th I'd be going to this event. Great wine, interesting winemakers, and lots of old posters, art nouveau or otherwise. Why is it I'd rather have one of them on my wall then a Flash banner ad from the Web?Price seems like more than a bargain, and the money goes to charity, too....   ... Here's your chance ...

  • Château Vieux Larmande Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 1995

    Snoothrank:

    complex nose of god knows what, red currants, tar, and tobacco. Entry is nice, but like mentioned in a previous review, a lack of complexity on the finish and it IS a bit hot with a touch of sweetness. I'm still trying to decide if this is marvelous or a sad decline.For a 1995, tasting it right now March 2nd, of 2010, I am a bit surprised how ... Read More

  • Château Vieux Larmande Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2006

    Snoothrank:

    A bit of sweet oak on the nose along with plummy fruit. Tight, but flashy, yet at times unassuming and closed. We tasted this wine over a 6 hour period after decanting. After 6 hours the plummy fruit became fresh dark cherry, way more youthful, and more balanced with finesse, but at the same time big red fruits. I enjoyed it a great deal. Needs... Read More
