    February 14, 2021 - Drinking very well right now and probably for a few more years.
    Some nice secondary notes coming through with the bottle age. Tannins are all rounded and settled, fruit has softened but has life and the wine has excellent balance, overall. This is well done and in a very good spot.

    February 6, 2021 - Intense nose with leather, forest floor and underlaying dark fruit, superb, on the palate still fresh with a good structure and some edges, long finish, very classical. At its peak now but will easily hold for additional 4 to 6 years.

    December 20, 2020 - Probably just a more mature bottle than the last one, but this is just starting to show signs of fatigue. Lovely elegant flavours of cassis and spices as usual, but just edging now towards tartness. It should be fine for another two years but it hasn't got the structure for longer and I see no reason for any further improvement.

    June 7, 2020 - Well, mine are still on form. As it ages, so it becomes more elegant, which I agree was never the case of LR in the past, but I'm not complaining. I admire the red and dark cherry, the blackberry and the overall balance of the wine, it's certainly at peal now, but it should remain there for another few years.

    (Château Lafon-Rochet) Dark garnet red color; murky, vegetal and possibly TCA tainted nose; tart cherry palate with coffee edges and little depth; short-medium finish (a 2nd bottle was a little better, 85+ pts, but still tight) (55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc)
