    July 24, 2013 - Vanilla, Mirabelles, lemon, some plastic, oysters, salt. A hint of minerals. Very good but needs to be drunk up.

    April 19, 2013 - First time with an old Graves. Citrus on nose, fennel, wax, grapefruit, then turning to old semillon/sauv blanc like an old Sauternes. Palate clean, fresh and zippy, but not dense. Needed time to open up and round out. Interesting.

    August 14, 2012 - 1985 Laville Haut Brion Blanc offered a beautiful, complex perfume filled with honey, floral, mineral, vanilla, citrus rind and lemon. Round, voluptuous and plush, this fully mature, white Bordeaux wine ends with a fresh, zesty, lemon finish.

    November 26, 2011 - Still remarkably fresh, light yellow color. Nice lemony flavors, slight vegetable oil and grapefruit notes, drinking very well if lacks a but of substance to be truly great.
