Dinner party, notes will be limited.
Bought from a restaurant closing about 5-6 years ago.
Menthol, mint, red pepper, steely, soft tannins but still good acid, our first 78 Bordeaux.

Beautiful color, with just the beginning of brick on the rim.
Aromas of tar, black currant leaf, dried black fruits. Still so youthful.
Actually this wine needs more time so show more complexity and has lots of life left.

From a beat up bottle this was a classic Leoville. The 88s have amazing aromatics but some can be tannic . This opened up nicely after decanting and was a lovely vineyard driven Bordeaux .

Wonderfully balanced with lean blue fruit, graphite, pepper and a very clam and composed finish. Classy, and open for business.

tasted alongside 100pt 2009s this showed how lower scoring “aged” Bordeaux can actually “drink better” ~ the expansive breadth of this wine in layers of fruit and tertiary flavors won everyone over

Perfect for a 1970. Plenty of fruit. Cherry and spice and still sweet versus dry tannins. Great wine for my BDay but not quite as old as me.
