  • Bouteille meilleure encore que la précédente. Excellent, long, et très présent, gras et concentré, herbes amères, café, chocolat, clou de girofle, algues, minéralité, pureté, bonne mâche et acidité parfaite, tannins fondus, mûre et cassis débordant... à son sommet.

  • Vraiment un château très plaisant... Après les 98 et 2000 que j'ai trouvé excellents, celui-ci rejoint les deux autres : excellent aussi !
    Très beau rubis nuancé de cerise et d'un soupçon d'ocre orange... très minéral, fumé, un peu corsé, épices et herbes amères, algues, menthe, pointe de cherry et de cerise, mûre, tabac (cigare), se tâte bien, bonne mâche, longueur en bouche. Excellent.

  • Winebid bottle. Yop shoulder fill. Saturate cork that fell in. Brown wine, some pepper on the nose and palate but otherwise rather old and tired, probably oxidize. I waxed and waned about whether this was past prime or a poor oxidized bottle and just decided it wasn't enjoyable and opened something else. 78, likely flawed.
    After a few hours in a decanter I decided this wasn't flawed, just old. Minty, tired, lacking fruit, but gained some substance.

  • Still a youthful deep garnet in color, not much aging evident. But age is definitely showing on the nose and palate. Subdued dark berries w tobacco. A rather tired wine only managing some interesting mint and roundness at the end. Fruit is all but gone. Mid-bodied, rather elegant thou. Acidic and short finish. Over the hill. http://sgbordeaux.blogspot.com/2012/02/lafon-rochet-1985.html

  • Way better then last bottle. Popped and poured. This is medium to full-body, full of fruit and soft herbs, virtually no tannins left. Great dinner-wine.
