Many 61s from this collection. Lafite as always ethereal elegant Burgundian.

Double decanted Big difference between '03 and '04 (both equally amazing). '04 more fruit forward than '03 on the nose. Boysenberry, blackberry, spices w/ clove cinnamon mix. Delightfully velvety, structured and balanced.

Wet earth, forest floor with over ripe black berry and black currants. Spectacular bottle, however tough to follow DRC La Tache.

If I could give this 20 points would. My WOTN and the best wine I've had all year. This is in its sweet spot now. That perfect moment when the wine is showing its best. Thank you @Bob Bressler

This is the second bottle. More concentration, density with a broader stance. Drinking younger than the first. Hard to decide, but I give a nudge to the first bottle for its beauty and delicacy.

Graphite. Cassis. Cigar box. Lightly dusty but still fucking delicious. To quote the Somm "this wine is fucking perfect."

Such a classy nose of well structured, fresh black fruits led by blackcurrant & cassis interlaced with cedar and a light graphite core that should show more as this ages. Palate is tightly packed but beautifully tailored, firm and impactful but with fine tannin and a deftness of touch. Quite haunting red & black fruits hang on a great length. Incredibly classy stuff though not showy, old money.
