    March 28, 2018 - Sothebys. Not as good as her wines from early 1990s. Translucent ruby yes, but also sour stinky aromas and acidic palate. (189+190/2292)

    March 11, 2017 - A fun quartet of 88's. DRC Richebourg, Leroy Richebourg, Leroy RSV, and Vogue Bonnes Mares. My order, and pretty much unanimous, was Vogue BM, Leroy Rich, Leroy RSV, and DRC Rich. The Vogue was served blind, and I thought it had the youthful sense of a 93. Delicious and striking. Neither of the Leroy's screamed Leroy, which in the context of drinking 88's was fine. The Richebourg was richer and more complete. The DRC Richebourg was the weak link here. Bottle, wine, not sure. Always fun to taste 88's and even more fun in a group.

    April 30, 2015 - liked this much better than the 1991. More feminine, very long, pure.

    April 24, 2012 - Knightsbridge El Bulli Buyout at Next Restaurant (Next Restaurant, Chicago IL): Amazing nose of red and black cherry with fantastic spice. Some earth and mushroomy notes as well. Palate was a bit lean at first, but then started fleshing out with more air. Fortunately someone at the table kept a little bit in their glass and I got to go back to it after an hour or two. All the great parts I tasted close to when it was opened all came together and made a fantastic wine. This bottle still had quite a bit of structure remaining. Delicious wine!

    April 24, 2012 - Knightsbridge Night at Next, El Bulli Menu (Next - Chicago IL): Open 3 hours before serving, not decanted. Started with great baking spice aromas, some good red fruit and hints of mushroom. Over time the aromatic depth and complexity became more rich and intense and floral. Flavors were mostly of red and black cherry with some good earthy elements in near background. Still firmly structured but very accessible, this peaked in terms of both power and charm after one hour in the glass. No question this will last for another decade or two, and perhaps may even get a little better from here. Thankfully I have one more bottle.

    (Domaine Leroy Richebourg) Reticent nose that opens up to berries; austere, berry, sous bois palate with pepper notes; medium-plus finish
