    December 24, 2020 - In a good state of maturity but frankly I found this a bit meh. Solid mature claret favours, a but tarry after a couple of hours. I’ve forgotten it already.

    October 27, 2020 - The 1989 Langoa Barton is showing beautifully, unwinding in the glass with aromas of Cuban cigars, cassis, cedar and sweet spices. Medium to full-bodied, muscular and structured, with a deep core of fruit and a firm chassis of rich, structuring, tannins, it's an old-school Médoc that still hasn't attained full maturity.

    December 2, 2019 - Colour still deep, the nose is cedary but also a bit leafy, not quite as ripe as I expected. The palate has flesh and is broad and easy but not so much on the finish that falls away a bit, drink up and enjoy now, current vintages feel much more impressive.

    November 24, 2019 - Bordeaux 1989 - 30years on in large formats (Luzern): Nose of cool blue fruit, mint, licorice, spices and pine, really nice. The palate could not fully follow up and was a touch too lean as so often with this Cru. Could have benefitted from riper fruit and more extraction.
