    January 18, 2019 - Chateau Leoville Poyferre vertical with Sarah Cuvelier (Le Cafe Descartes at the French Embassy): Nicely mature nose displaying soft and warm black fruit, a hint of cremes de cassis, plum, strong cedar, a hint of green and earth. Medium concentration, subtle warm black fruit, silky, medium acidity and mineral, and a medium long subtle black fruit driven finish with green and cedar at the end. This is drinking wonderfully, a classic claret.

    November 29, 2018 - Needs another couple years or at least 4 hours decant. Good barnyard sweet, short finish.

    November 11, 2018 - Decanted 3 hrs. Aromatically pure and classic Left Bank, with a palate that matches suit. This is clearly in a early window of maturity, with a lovely display of cassis that is both expressive yet refrained, back end notes of soil and the ol’ No.2 pencil harmonize so well here. Tannins are still present, but support nicely on the finish. Much love here.
