behdadjoon I'm all about the minimalism. By the way, that's rubia residue in the fingernails. Fresh. :) 22h

behdadjoon So the more I taste the more I think 83 is an under rated vintage next to a blockbuster. Not as extreme as 88 and 89 but it is there. Makes me wish I had tried more when they were younger as it is now over the top a bit. Or perhaps it is just the classical fading Bordeaux beauty and younger it was not well integrated as my memory tells me. In any case, it was always a bit hit or miss. This Leoville had a lovely charm, but I doubt I would pay whatever would be asked today if you could find it for a repeat experience. Last bottle :( 4d
  •   jeremygiesbrecht I've been loving the 83's over the last couple of years, definitely underrated in my opinion. 4d

behdadjoon Perhaps the best PC 04 I have had from the Côte d'Or. Really stands out and atypical for the vintage with depth and fruit in good balance with the minerality and acidity you would expect. A point. Disregard the water damage marks from a bit of leakage in my cellar 4d

behdadjoon I had heard this was a red wine. Glad the label cleared that up. 1mon
  •   crazydervish Gosh, been years since I had this! 1mon
  •   vinousrambler The 2001 was excellent. 1mon
  •   eiriksoreide Great wine 1mon
  •   behdadjoon @vinousrambler I think they need age. Younger ones I have tried are all a bit tight. Hard to see how it ages without a deeper reference of examples than I have 1mon
  •   behdadjoon @eiriksoreide it was surprisingly good for a young one. Not sure I would say great given the price 1mon
  •   behdadjoon @crazydervish worth a try but would not stock a vertical in the cellar. Might pick up a vertical at auction for a good price, but the odds of that are low ;) 1mon
  •   eiriksoreide It is not cheap 😀 but the quality is fantastic. Very young. 1mon
  •   vinousrambler I stopped buying them after the 2001 vintage when the price went crazy. There are other wines to look at in the price range $$$. The oldest one I've tried was an '85. 4w
