  • Incredibly balanced wine opened on new year's to rave reviews. Completely beautiful with not a hair out of place and speaking in a reassured white burg voice. Either there is terrific bottle variation with this wine (including some premoxed bottles but not this one) or it is just hitting its stride. Either way, I was glad to have it.

  • A very enjoyable bottle that went well with a cold shellfish buffet. Straw yellow in color with a nice floral nose. Delicious palate of butter, minerals and a hint of lemon. Smooth as silk with not a hint of premox. According to Coates, this wine sees no new wood. It seems that I like this better than most CT raters, but my wine buddies enjoyed this as well. Is it worth the price--probably not, but very enjoyable nonetheless.

  • A 7-8 years old Lafon and it's not oxidised. Horray! Lovely deep nose of butter, citrus, rubber and a sweet underlaying fruity core. Fat attack but very good acidity balancing it nicely. Finish carried by the buttery fatness. Very good showing today!

  • In Vino Veritas Session 3 (MIT): Not showing well tonight. Slightly urinous nose, slightly spicy fruit. Less fragrant than I had hoped. A touch hot and a little flabby. Oily, delicious, lemon pith (a little bitter) and baked buttery apple. Feels a little tired, but finishes long and warm. Not at all oxidized, nor does this feel like it has any other flaw - perhaps just a little old? Or perhaps just not my kind of wine. 13%, $125.
