    April 11, 2020 - Un peu austère mais prêt à boire.

    October 16, 2019 - Chef Michel Roux Jr & Lafon-Rochet (Basile Tesseron) Wine Dinner - Roux at Parliament Square. Limited notes.
    Considering the vintage, not at all bad! Mature feel. Typical Lafon green herb combining with the bramble and plum fruit. On the lighter side and some marked if integrated acidity.
    Good food claret for up to 10-12 years from vintage.

    June 30, 2018 - My 100th tasting note! Unfortunately I dropped this bottle in my cellar, so I now have this typical French chateau cellar smell at home as well. The bottle broke but fortunately I was able to rescue one last glass from it, which I saved for the evening. Deep dark red color. On the nose lots black fruits and wood dominated smells. Medium acidity, medium finish. Very nice.

    June 16, 2018 - Tasted next to 2015. Good fruit, quite mineral, spicy and very fresh. The tannins are a bit rustic, but the overall balance is good. Vibrant, grippy, bright finish. 89-91

    May 27, 2018 - From a magnum. Very good St-Estèphe, showing a nice structure for this weak vintage. The balance is excellent, but overall the wine lacks in intensity and complexity. You can certainly wait a few more years, especially in magnums, but I don't think it will improve by much. Enjoy before 2021.
