    January 1, 2022 - Early in drinking window. Taut core of leather, tannins a touch chewy. Like the tobacco and coffee, dark fruit. A bit clunky but appealing.

    December 27, 2021 - I have consistently scored this in the 93-94 range over the years. This was the last bottle and probably the best. Decanted 3 hours, it helped a little but never really changed that much. Very quality wine, good fruit, starting to open a bit. Has great elegance to it. Plenty of time for it to develop more.

    December 24, 2021 - 2nd of 24, opened 90 minutes, decanted 90 minutes, perfect cork and level, smaller scaled impression than bottle in July and less delineation, sense of going into shell, didn't find any of the green notes in JL's note below but a bit too well mannered for LLC of this age, upside probable in couple of years. Downgraded for now to F+ (18).

    November 22, 2021 - Amazing! Beautiful deep ruby, medium viscosity. Decanting over an hour, during the first 20 minutes flavors of iron, tobacco, leather dominated. By the hour the blackberry and cherry came forward into perfect balance. Great with lamb chops! What a finish. Pair well with Hank Mobley solo! Should have decanted much longer but I couldn't help it.

    (Chateaau Leoville Las Cases) #3; COLOR-dark; NOSE-veggies baby; beautiful broccoli head; adore the purple plum component; a little carrot top action; and some black pepper; TASTE-this is really good wine; very polished; I love the granite meets mocha; great mid-palate; great subtle hints of vanilla; young; hints of vegetable; tomato sauce; a surprisingly short finish; but very well-made; ; WS-95; GV-92+
