    July 14, 2020 - During a "Covid Stuck in Singapore" 14.July French National day lunch. Holy cow, 30 years old and very masculine. Commanding tannins and wild forest floor. Complex, long finish.

    June 20, 2020 - I completely agree with the 95 + ratings. This is an excellent bottle of wine. The 82 is my favorite, the 89 a close second. The 1990 is preferred to the 98 or 2000 at this time in age for me. Above are the vintages I have tried thus far. Note I haven't had a bottle pre dating 82.

    April 1, 2020 - Superb Nose - and balanced and deep vibrant black fruit - brilliant balance and long finish - very nice and sweet spot

    March 11, 2020 - Single Blind 1990 Bordeaux (The Bristol - Chicago, IL): An enchanting nose that is so complex with mature plum, herb, spice and a distinct band-aid note (that is not for everyone). The palate is rich and just beams with complex layers of fruit, tobacco, earth and more. Long, long finish. Guessed LMHB.

    March 11, 2020 - Clearly stewed and seemingly heat damaged. Fortunately, a second bottle was available.
