Old Wine Questions

A local shop has the following wines at quite low prices:

1975 Prieure Lichine
1978 Haut Bages Liberal
1981 Clerc Milon
1998 Leoville Barton

I am pretty sure the last will be fine, maybe even too young. I used to have a lot of '81 Bordeaux--decent year, very good prices back in the day--but I drank them all eons ago and never thought of them as 30-year wines.

'78 is a vintage I have close to zero experience with.

'75s I have had my share of, though never this wine. They were OK 10 or 15 years go.

Anyone have recent experience with these wines, or just a general sense of how they might be today?

Thanks.
