Not to burst your bubble, but you may have read here the debate that flares up about LLC every few months—between those who like it and those who don’t. I personally don’t like any LLC made after the ‘66. You might want to figure out if you like LLC and how it matures before laying down recent vintages for the long haul.

This contrasts for example with Leoville Barton, for which there continues to be near-universal love from all camps.
I expect there are not many people who share your view. The common issue that people raise with LLC is that many/most vintages take too long to mature (and possibly that some never reach their apparent potential, though I think fewer people believe that). If you serve LLC vintages like 1985 and 1990, though, I expect there are relatively few people who will not find them excellent. 1990 LLC is worlds better than 1990 Leoville Barton in my opinion.

Yes, I've read similar comments on LLC but I've figured that if I am going to lay down some bottles (and that's not a wine I'll be buying by the case given the price) I should do it while I'm young.
I'm trying to find a fairly priced mature LLC from a good to great vintage in the meantime.

Early in my wine journey I had the chance to taste 1983 and 1985 LLC at a dinner hosted by Domaines Delon (owners of LLC and other chateaux; presumably the bottles were pristine). I was underwhelmed and have avoided LLC since, especially given the tariff

I liked these a lot. Recall you sent me a bottle. I grabbed some 82 then as well, also showing lovely. Not blockbusters, just solid and classic. The 1990 has always been fabulous. I just passed on some on WineBid for $55. Shoulda grabbed it. Nice score, Neal.

.375’s of 2005 Bel-Orme Tronquoy de Lalande Haut Medoc. Honestly I’ve never had it, but it was on sale, available to ship to Texas, and the CT notes and a few comments here were enough to pull the trigger.

Very cool. Just saw from Wine Searcher that there is a retailer near me that has the 2016. Not cheap, but I’m intrigued. Do you have any notes that you can share?

Very cool. Just saw from Wine Searcher that there is a retailer near me that has the 2016. Not cheap, but I’m intrigued. Do you have any notes that you can share?
Haven't opened any yet. You may check out CellarTracker for taste notes...

In general 1988-1990 were pretty damn good years. In my own limited experience 1989 is the biggest, largest scaled of the 1988/1989/1990 trio. The 1988s show more complexity, the 1990s more harmony. For me tasting the 1989 Yquem is like watching an elephant dance; you can't quite believe your tastebuds that something this big can also show this much grace and delicacy

I have not tried the 1989 Climens, which is something I need to fix [cheers.gif]

I have another '89 Climens happy to crack open in NY sometime
To your comment on '88s.... I've enjoyed 1988 Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey (quite enjoyed for the $30 price point!).. happy to open alongside the Climens
