Community Tasting Notes 12

    August 19, 2021 - Much more approachable now than when I tried it last year. The nose is still dominated by green pepper and fresh red fruit that has not ripened. The palate is more smooth, with tannins that are just right, and a medium finish. Red fruit on the palate and a lingering finish of tobacco. Ready to drink

    April 19, 2021 - St.Julien tasting. Next to the stellar 2010s of Leoville Poyferre and Ducru Beaucaillou this 2013 LLC really looked measly. I confirms that 2013 is a thoroughly lousy vintage. No offence, this wine is lovely, with soft tannins, not over extracted but it drinks like a fruity happy-go-lucky 20$ CabSav and neither has the depth nor the length of a Left Bank Grand Cru. There is always so much marketing talk by the big Chateaux about selecting only their best for the 1st wine and leaving the rest to the 2nd wine etc., but when push comes to shove in a very bad vintage like 2013 they still stay away from declassifying their entire 1st wine and make a 2nd wine only in this year. Let me be very clear: Producing this LLC was a mistake!

    March 13, 2021 - Quite thin and still a bit closed. Not sure where this will end up

    November 7, 2020 - Nose of green pepper, mint, leather and forest floor. The palate is smooth and the tannins light with a medium minty finish. Licorice, pepper, and a hint of dark fruit. Ready to drink.

    January 18, 2020 - Dark ruby. Nose of bright red and dark cherries, berries,quite a bit of green elements, bell pepper, sweet spice. The palate shows the weakness of the vintage; good balance initially but th fruit is thin and soon dominated by the high acidity ending in a medium finish. Not as bad as what they say for the vintage but clearly what I tasted does not justify a LLC price tag.
