Latour67, slightly off topic, but I have a different take on "aging well" re: your comment about the LLC aging better than the PL.

In an ideal world a perfect wine would reach maturity in 5 years, having shed the tannin, the oak absorbed into the fruit, and the secondary and tertiary bouquet and flavor components emerging. To me a wine that takes 20 years to reach this stage vs. 10 is "aging less well", not better.

Just a different perspective. Last time I checked waiting for something was a negative, getting it quicker is a positive.
