    February 16, 2020 - Stephan should bottle. Sensational Mouton. This is one of the more voluptuous and showy examples whereas some are surprisingly mean and ungiving. Terrific range of fruit which is not all in the black spectrum. Finishes with a flourish. Excellent future for the good bottles.

    February 15, 2020 - Jamming with Stu (Dune, Fort Lauderdale): Great showing with black and red fruits and exotic spices on the nose, excellent balance, palate coating, and complex finish. Outstanding. Ahead of the other 82 first growths, until the 82 Latour made an appearance and left them all behind.

    February 7, 2020 - Wines for the Acker Merrall Bicentennial Auction (The Pool - New York NY): Small glass, brief note. Double blind. Lots of dense and complex black fruit with elegant textures, great length. Clearly 1980s Bordeaux, correctly identified as a great 1982.

    January 28, 2020 - Bordeaux from the 80s (Peppercorn's (Hartford, CT)): Dark red in color, with just a bit of garnet on the rim. Cigar box and herbs. Elegant and lively, but a bit short. Very nice, but disappointing, given the reputation of this wine.

    December 20, 2019 - Eastside Tasting Group End of Year Extravaganza (Newcastle, WA): A terrific example of this wine. Incredible spine and mineral. My notes were thin, but the wine was not.
