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.

Great, but riper and more lush than I would have expected...

Tasted blind. Red scarlet mixed in with dark tawny color. Bright fruit meets you from the start. This is still very young, chewy and has some strong tannins. This is evolving at a glacial place. Probably will be a wine for my kids to enjoy. 94 but will surely score higher down the road.

The extraction and rich, sweet black fruit whispered Napa but the pencil lead on the nose and subtle morel mushrooms and cedar gave it away. Nuanced but crisp cassis, toast and a light minerality that lingered forever. Beautiful. Was amazed by the subtle variation in each bottle from an OWC uncorked and decanted together.
