Hands down the most exemplary showing from Bordeaux of my birth year vintage. First of all, a spectacular night spent with @Mike R and @David L at Somni in Beverly Hills for a transcendent foundation shaking 20 course meal that will linger in my memory for decades. Mike sourced this bottle in Raleigh from someone who purchased on release and it screamed provenance. I was blown away by this bottle. Delicious graphite and plum fragrance on pop, zero musty vibes, cloudy garnet in the glass but showing absolutely no loss of weight, gravitas or structure. Ample rich fruit, dusty mouth staining tannins and a full, silky, sexy finish. This was next level. Thank you @Mike R for this. It is without a doubt a benchmark wine for me.

👀 unreal. Still has it. Not faded at all. Vibrant, lush, funk, and fruit

1982, I don't think I need to say more.

I opened this in January to toast a passing friend and it is still in an excellent drinking window. This bottle from GQ shirt guy @Kirk Alexander was showing even better. Iron, earth, cherry tobacco and grainy rich tannings. Special.

Dominated by VA. Soy sauce, fermented chili paste, bing cherry comes out with time and warming.

This was the back-up to the Lafite. It may have benefitted from a decant but I thought it strutted from the outset. Rich dark cherry pipe tobacco, ripe and full with gobs of sweet fruit, iron, exotic spice and bruised plum. Class and substance.

Really intense, perfumed nose but this bottle lacks the intensity I’ve had from other old Bordeaux. Did not think it lived up to my expectations
