    January 21, 2020 - 1961 vs 1982 Bordeaux (Boston): Great fruit. Still got tannins. Starting to hit peak.

    December 31, 2019 - After some outstanding bottles had in the past this was not my lucky day. After a corked bottle, number two was nice, but no longer reaching past glory. Delicate nose of plum, cigar tobacco, leather and phenolic sweetness. Medium bodied, very subtle and elegant, with fine cedar, chocolate, liquorice, plum and tobacco, hints of exotic spices and tea in the background, providing aromatic complexity. But fading, lacking expressiveness and depth experienced with previous bottles. I reckon that I had my last one too late - this wine has passed its optimum.

    December 31, 2019 - Corked. What a pity.

    December 25, 2019 - This is exactly how I prefer a 40 year old bottle of Left bank to taste like. This bottle still had beautiful acidity and crushed black fruits. Tannins silky and perfect. Finish goes on for 10 seconds. No decant needed on this one.

    October 24, 2019 - Really amazing how pure this is...young seeming...cork was moldy and slid right into the bottle. purple...barely bricking...fruit still alive...really no signs of age!
