    September 14, 2019 - 10-12 year old bottle. Darker golden hue. Wonderful nose showing bruised apples, ripe lemons, butter, nuts, autolysis, soap and chalk - all of it coated in some sweet oaky note. Palate gave more sunripe lemons, orange peel, apples, rust, salts, and wet stone. More youthful than the bottle I had with same provenance 11 months ago, which overall showed better (bar fading bubbles, which I do not mind). Lovely. 93-94p.

    August 7, 2019 - Shared with Xavier94 and a small group on his b'day: This was reliably clean, floral and elegant. Remains my favorite MV after the Krug.

    July 16, 2019 - It's tough to follow the 160eme Krug, but this carried the burden. There was a savory mushroom note upon opening, and I initially feared it might be slightly corked, but the must blew of rather than amplified with time in the glass. Still very savory, a dense and long finish, very mildly oxidative-nutty, with a fine persistent bead. This bottle was a blend of three vintages from the mid '90s, based on the label and the foil.

    June 30, 2019 - Cork said D71.., which my research tells me means disgorgement in Q4 2017 and a 2006 (70%)-2004-2002 blend (apparently L-P GS #23). Huge presence both on nose and, particularly, palate. Intensely perfumed, multi faceted. Fruits and mature aromas are fiercely battling for your attention. I call it a draw! Fantastic structure in the mouth. What a depth! If only the dosage had been a little lower, (the ripe fruits do not need much support in that departement, me think) I would have scored it 1-2p higher. Believe this would be best with at least 5 more years of cellaring, but do not necessarily think this one is for the long haul. Perhaps 10+ years max?
