I found this in a wine bar in Tokyo as well. This is a fascinating red that starts off slightly musty and earthy - reductive. It was decanted before serving. But after about five to ten minutes in the decanter, it starts to show flowers and dried berry character with spices. It even has hints of custard. It's full to medium body, with fine tannins and a fresh and beautiful finish. It's balanced and beautiful right now. I remember drinking this numerous times in Paris in the late 1980s and it had similar balance. A timeless and pretty wine.
The 1970 La Lagune is still surprisingly firm, but, I believe, fully mature. It has a dark ruby color, a big, plummy, woodsy, and mushroom-like bouquet, full-bodied, deep, concentrated, berryish fruit flavors, good tannins, and a long finish. This is a fine La Lagune that falls just short of being outstanding....Last tasted, 1/91 (from a magnum).
Medium ruby-garnet; fragrant, tarry, ripe, toasty nose; firm, fruity, fairly plump and stylish, though not big.
