Kenji Suzuta wore a face of grave concentration as he poured vintage 1983 Chateau Lagrange into his glass, sniffed it, let it trickle gently into his mouth and swished the wine across his tongue. Suddenly grimacing, Suzuta leaned over and spit the ruby-colored sample of grand cru into a sink, leaving an unsophisticated visitor wondering whether to do likewise or to swallow. "It's not bad," Suzuta observed with detachment. "Very round and mellow but not a great wine." Suzuta should know.
