    January 11, 2021 - Needed about 45 mins in a decanter. Tart red fruit, leather and spice notes. Some caramel came thru after 1 1/2. A little biting on the finish. Slightly past prime tonight

    October 3, 2020 - This bottle was quite lively, with red and dark fruit, menthol and spice and a lingering finish. Not as rich as some of the other bottles I have had, but still a terrific wine.

    September 26, 2020 - Léoville-Barton vertical at Noize London with Wine Pages group. 82, 85, 89, 90, 95, 96, 99, 00, 02 and 04.
    For me this 82 was WOTN followed closely by the 90 (the 90 just shaded it in overall group scoring). This wine is beautiful, resolved, packed with the LB black fruits and still retains enough acid to carry it forwards many more years. Tobacco smoke and a super long finish.

    April 17, 2020 - One of the best red bordeaux I've ever drunk. Maybe the best. Very concentrated and fruity, yet smooth and delicate. Decanted, but drunk it immediately after. I would not recommend anything else. Highly recommended.
