95 Points

Saturday, October 13, 2018 - Super Vintages of SuperSeconds🍷 (Riga, Latvia): 🏅 Rating 95+/100 (4,55🌟)

Cherry, tobacco, earth and spices. On a plateau and won’t improve with age. Don't wait, drink now.

2nd Growth Classe. 72% CS, 20% M, 8% CF. Fermented in 200hl wood barrels, 20mo aging in 50% new oak. Fining & filtration.

1 of the best buys among Super 2nds. Quality is there, but price is still behind.

Very CS driven.

1990 is the best performing vintage for LB which is at peak maturity now.
