    April 6, 2021 - Pencil shavings and blackcurrant aromas, then a fairly classic mouthful of cool blackcurrant with hints of raspberry and loganberry. I should have decanted as the tannins were initially quite aggressive. The only downside is the rather lacklustre finish, where the fruit is fading, but overall I enjoyed the freshness and restraint. Not the best LR and presumably not one of the better 06s, but I enjoyed it.

    December 11, 2020 - Great classic claret, smooth tannins and good balance, see other notes here. Very good drinking now, may not improve anymore.

    November 6, 2020 - Silky mouthfeel, with fine tannins, and woodsy, earthy notes accented by black pepper and leather. Perhaps a year or so past its prime?

    September 7, 2020 - Dark maroon. Colour shows deep concentration. Ripe prunes, dark plum, dried herb, earthy, fine oak, mineral, dark chocolate, tobacco. Firm tannins that soften after 30min. Full bodied and long finish. Magnum bottle.

    September 5, 2020 - Lovely mature nose with leather, tar, sweet Tobacco, red berries. On the platemedium bodied, evident tannin that craves food, good balance and length. In a good spot right now, for those who enjoy classic claret.
