    December 19, 2020 - Popped and poured. This is a solid red wine with some mild sediment at the end of the bottle. On the nose, I get black currant, black cherry, leather, and some fresh tobacco. In the mouth, this brings some delicious dark fruits that are nicely and finely layered. The finish shows a slight tannic prickle while also lingering with a smoldering fire aspect. Overall, this is classic Bordeaux from a great year. The wine is still very young but is enjoyable now and displays tremendous future potential. 94 points.

    December 14, 2020 - Omg...had to try this after the previous drinker’s note. And this did not disappoint. Gorgeous in every way. Classic LB but w an extra gear. 2009 is such a gorgeous vintage for Bordeaux. In two words, mind blowing.

    November 28, 2020 - This is my all time favorite wine - ever and this bottle was no disappointment. Elegant as hell, beautifully balanced, long, tobacco-ese finish on well developed dark berries flavours. The opposite of anything California, low alcohol, finesse, fruit without jam, the most heavenly French of French. Had on Thanksgiving with teenagers that mistakenly opened and started pouring without abandon before we caught them. One of them, who drinks 90+ pointer Brunello's with us on a regular basis, but swears "I can't tell the difference between this and Franzia (ahem!), for the first time said: "Oh, THIS is good." Haha.

    November 20, 2020 - Primary and intense. Plenty of dark fruit, some funk, earth, and oak. Definitely needs time but so delicious and promising right now. Enjoyable but hold. Thanks to Jeff for opening.

    November 16, 2020 - Velmi dobré, stále kyselé, trochu neurovnané. Ještě chvíli potřebuje.
