Good to see you posting more lately. I've always valued your opinions since you, along with Julius and Nanop, helped me select the wine for a house warming party a few years ago. [We went with Seavey, Eddy, Miner, Vine Cliff and BV GDL.]
Agree with you on the Seavey, yet I'm still hopeful time will tame this beast.
I'm going to pick up the Monbousquet on your req.
I've hestated because of RP's opinion of the vintage, (in relation to '98) but that's very broad stroke.
You mention the '99 Latour. Have you tried Margaux, Haut Brion, Lafite, and Mouton?
I recently found a cache of '97 Paradigm. Is it safe to assume you're a fan?
Better Red Than Not!
