Super classic, refined and elegant, offering grainy tannins, cedar, red and dark berries, dusty minerality and hints of chocolate. No rush here, but won't last forever.

Sappy and deep nose of moss and mushroom, iron, blood and cherry jam, touch white pepper. Long and first rate palate, a little closed compared to nose bit very mineral and mossy, irony, and spicy. Lots of rock in a classic style i really enjoy. Beautiful, but i can't justify paying $600 for it, at least not for another 10 years...2006 Vintage.

This LMHB is good but not great, comparing with the '82 is not fair. But great drinking pleasure

Beautiful aromatic floral representation of Pessac Leognan. Neighbor to the more brooding Haut Brion.

The last powerhouse from last night. All @India Okoh choice. And she chose well!

Deep garnet red. Muted nose, needs some time to fully open up, has some layers of bark, cedar, dark cocoa, a touch of anise, herbs and a little earthiness. Heavy tannins (8/10) and full bodied. After some breathing time this finally started to open up on the palate with some layers of damp leaves, earthiness, cherries, and tight truffles. Dry and super long finish. Drink till 2027.
