In remarkably good shape, as the last bottle. Very silky, slightly fading. Still very complete and enjoyable.

At a classified Bordeaux tasting, followed a 1990 Lafon-Rochet. Interesting to see how this can develop. Much more fruit-forward in its youth, but still, the structure and complexity are there.

Nice nose. After just 15 minutes of air, the wine was ready to go. Some truffle, cassis and black fruit with a bit of almond on the finish.

Fully mature, deep ruby with rich red and black fruit, licorice, cedar, espresso, and iron/blood. Silky resolved mouth coating tannin. Unfortunately, my last bottle. Ready to drink now. Enjoy!

Following the all the assessments that the '03s are evolving rapidly and need to be tended to, I decided to pull my first of two bottles. Indeed, it seemed more evolved than you'd expect at this age, but this is an '03. I personally liked this vintage on release, and found this estate enjoyable, showing odd raspberry notes on the nose, which were melded with licorice, cedar, mint, and minerals (iron). Good, medium sized wine still packaged in a notable structure, little heat detected, although not especially complex in the mouth, or long on the finish. I'll hold my last bottle another 2-3 years to see what comes of it...

AHA Bordeaux Wine Tasting of the 2012 vintage with a surprise additional year: Strong tannins at 8.5 - better for me than the 2012. A light fruity start (just a hint) that never moves from the hint it starts with.

1970 Château Lafon-Rochet

St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend more

Bottle stored in passive cellar since release and fill was below shoulder, so the expectations were this wine was likely going down the sink. To build on that expectation, the top of the cork was moldy, the overly moist cork crumbled upon extractionn, the wine was brown and there is really not much on the nose. Surprisingly, the wine still was drinkable, although clearly way past its prime. Dry, with fruit and tannins very reduced. Nonetheless, there was enough left to show former character and to make worth consuming.

From the start a beautiful bouquet with still some dark fruits, cedar, smoke, toast and a pleasant touch of barnyard. On the palate dark berry fruits, a touch of chocolate, graphite, soft acidity and round tannin with still some bite and slightly drying in the finish. The wine improves with some more air. Gives you a luxury feeling. The wine is at its peak now and will probably stay there for another year or two.

This wine always seems a bit thin and metallic for a while before it gains momentum. Then it develops more roundness as it airs, with notes of leather and dark plum and spices which make it very pleasurable.

Polished and lush with black raspberries and dark chocolate covered cherries in the nose, this wine has round tannins, ample concentration, sweetness and freshness. The wine was made from a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot, and 4% Cabernet Franc, reaching 13.5% alcohol. 91-93 Pts

Hmmm, no flaws per se, but maybe just still closed. Deep minerally earthiness, some dull dark fruit, reticent. Had better '95s lately.

This wine was just ok...I've find a number of 95s to be frankly unprofound lacking character traits I've become accustomed to with Bordeaux...

This took 2 hours to open up, which is a similar experience I have had with another 2000 st estephe. Very closed at first and not showing anything...rated at the end of the night. When opened up it was herbal, balanced, rich, classic cassis, evolving nose and palate which were not yet showing secondary characteristics. Sinewy smooth palate with elegant oak. I get the sense this could go a surprisingly long way, but will be solid classic Bordeaux for now if you give it some air.

Splash decanted just before dinner. This made by far the most favorable impression of the case bought EP so far. Elegant nose of red but more black fruit with a bit of tobacco. Very smooth, nice finish. Tasty!

2 bottles decanted for 2 hours together for Mother's Day dinner (main and cheese course).
By cheese course the best part of four hours had elapsed and this wine's fruit really blossomed out of the tarry dense - but fine - construct of earlier notes.
Easily earned the extra point(s) and will certainly decant remaining bottles for a full 3+ hours. For drinking over the next couple of years.
