    October 28, 2021 - Needs a 2-3 hour decant and after that a very traditional St Julien.

    My 7th vintage of LLC: 1978, 1983, 1996, 2003, 2006, 2008 and 2011.
    Perfectly cellared since release.

    September 10, 2021 - Acker Auction BYO (Craft NYC): 5L. Really excellent nose that still has rich, sexy plum with some dark chocolate, tobacco and cedar. A little light on the palate, though vintage and age appropriate.

    September 10, 2021 - Acker's COVID-Vaccinated BYO Dinner and Auction Simulcast (Craft - New York NY): Small glass from 5L bottle, brief note. Dense and fairly powerful, nicely combining fresh and mature fruit and subtle earth bits. Very good.

    April 14, 2021 - SLDS April 2021: Redcurrant, leafy, smoke and light cedar. Soft and resolved on the palate, still showing spice and light red fruit with enough of a spine to carry it. Very nice place to drink, medium length and good balance.

    November 26, 2020 - The 83 las Cases harkens back to an older style of Bordeaux; less ripe and made with a lighter touch, this shows cassis, pencil, cedar, and thyme notes in a lithe, athletic style, more long distance runner than weight lifter (92-93 points)
