    December 13, 2021 - RZ's Bordeaux Seconds (Hawksmoor Guildhall): More like it! Spot on. A bit of pencil lead, a whiff of forest floor but all in all just a well put together claret. Buy to drink now or buy to drink in 20 years.

    October 29, 2021 - good deep rec color just starting to show some age on the rim, rich nose of plum, cherries and cassis, light pepper notes, on the palate a wonderful mature fruit with a beautiful sweet ripe core along with some traces of the great austerity this showed at release, good length and about there- just needs a little more time for the details to come to the surface, a fine future ahead and even by Leoville-Barton's standards this should be quite long lived.

    October 29, 2021 - Moden og salig nese av mørke og klassiske aromaer. Kraftig frukt i munn, med passe nedslipte tanniner. Ganske old school og rustikk i uttrykket. Robust. God balanse mellom frukt og struktur. Drikker bra nå, men kan kanskje vinne noe eleganse og drikkevennlighet med mer tid på langs.
    Har alt for å lagre i 10+ år til.

    October 17, 2021 - Deep garnet core, fairly opaque. Dense nose of plum and pencil shavings. Still tight, even after 4+ hours of air. Dry, full-bodied, balanced acidity, still a bit tannic, though the remaining tannins are not at all distracting. Plum, cassis, and oak — not fully integrated yet, still rather primary and un-evolved. A remarkable wine for the vintage. I think this still has several good years ahead.
