    January 20, 2023 - Pronounced nose intensity with notes of cooked black fruits, toast, spices, leather, wet forest. Drinking at its peak. Decanted 2 hours. Medium+ acidity and medium tannin. Tannin is smooth.

    January 1, 2023 - Lovely fruity wet forest on the nose. Strong elegance with plenty of layers growing with each sip. Full fruity body finishing very soft and long. Great wine from a not so great vintage.

    June 11, 2022 - Had two small pours. Served from a decanter along with other 1998 Bordeaux.
    Medium garnet to tawny color.
    Nose offers leather and tobacco with some plum notes.
    Refined, showing off more tertiary notes of leather, old books, and dried tobacco than fruit. Tannins nicely integrated.
    Enjoyable.

    April 1, 2022 - This showed beautifully today and was best after a couple hours in the decanter. High toned and even a little volatile at first, with nail polish, transitioning into pen ink, purple fruits, some bay leaf, and rose hip. This was lovely and will sit on its plateau for a good 5-10 years. Not the best vintage but a good one for PLL
