    January 19, 2022 - Almost identical impression as I had 2 years ago. Initially very youthful, but opened up beautifully after a couple of hours. A very nice wine but not among my top for 2001s.

    January 5, 2022 - Decanted NY Eve and drank about 1/2. Went dry for a few days and drank the rest 3 nights later after it was corked in fridge the whole time. Wine never really blossomed with full sweetness and definitely a tad green/lean after 3 nights. Perfectly nice wine and especially at the price I paid.

    November 25, 2021 - From magnum. Soft and easy to drink. Fully mature and nice currant and touch of mushrooms on the finish.

    October 17, 2021 - Dinner out in Jersey with some friends: A favorite I think among the group as this was the first bottle to finish. Good medium aged Bordeaux. In general I've tried to keep pre-2000 as a rule of thumb, but actually this was in a nice spot right now. A touch young, but it's developed the complexity and isn't quite as tight as a very young wine would be. Nice to try.

    September 27, 2021 - Slow oxed for a couple hours (no decant). This did evolve in the glass a fair amount. Served blind, my first thought was 2000 left bank bordeaux. It had cool cassis fruit, a faint bit of pencil lead and old leather, but there was this candied red cherry note and certain richness that had me thinking Opus One or Dominus, so I went with 04 Opus. Should have stuck to my guns. It’s a really fine Leoville, less VA/nail polish than 99, and only slightly less power than a 2000 tasted last year. I do love LLC
