    October 13, 2021 - Damp basement nose; sweet velvety blackberry with sweet finish.

    August 22, 2021 - Drank in WQ 2-yr-old BD, over 50 years, it is still fruity though a bit acidic, red fruits dominate, finish is long, but again, a bit acidic making it a bit unbalanced, tannin fully dissolved, smooth, fruits already merged with the cigar like flavor. I can discribe the wine as still lively and fruity but the a little bit acidic.. may be it is a classic style of bordeaux 50years ago? but my last try of a 82 chasse spleen was very sweet..

    June 24, 2021 - Gareth's Magnum Dinner, part 1 (Noize): Magnum. Still pretty dark (as you'd expect from a mag of LLC, I guess). Not an assertive wine though, just very classic: juicy, smoky, red-fruited and with a touch of barnyard - very far from completely tertiary. Mature and well-balanced but lacked the impact for greatness.

    April 9, 2021 - Flawed. Medium garnet in colour. Cork is soak thru and I guess it had been oxidised. The cork is soft and broke. Medium tannin and acidity. The nose smell oxidised.
