80 points
Big Leflaive nose. Caramel/butterscotch, dark brown, wood, chewy, lemon. Lacking the ummph and fruit to balance it. The palate is weaker - it has some lemon and caramel, but no drive - a lack of acidity. The finish is short and lemony. Nose - 4/6, Palate - 3/6, Finish - 3/6, Je Ne Sais Pas - 0/2 = 10/20.

Just realize that when you give ridiculously low scores that don't coincide with the system everyone else is adhering to, you end up making people think a wine is worse than it is because you are single handedly making the ratings scued. The feedback consistently given about you is "why does this guy feel the need to put his score into the CellarTracker scoring module rather than put it in the notes." You have numerous "NR" scores, so why not use that and put the score in the notes so everyone can see it just the same.

    Many of us actually appreciate your system as it pertains to your personal scores, and if you read through your ranking of wines, it all makes sense. However, there's no reason to knowingly create your own unique scoring system and are compelled to affect the community averages.
