    January 18, 2021 - Coravin fun - Lafon Rochet (My place, Kent Street): From Coravin. Meaty, slightly Bretty, savoury, leather, wet earth, brambles and blackcurrant, a little bonfire smoke, sweet spice, the gamey/funky notes grow with time. Medium plus intensity acidity, flavours are a touch muted here, plenty of woody, talc textured tannins close down the palate, touch of Asian spice especially star anise on the finish. Hmm.

    January 14, 2021 - Fresh and alive, good fruit with currants and cassis, some secondary aromas of cedar and spice, well integrated tannins, long finish, continue to improve over an hour

    January 2, 2021 - Drank alongside a '95 Haut-Marbuzet. This was the more aromatic of the two wines upon opening, showing a typical rustic St Estephe nose of brambly berry and cedar. Did not really open up as much as I expected over the course of several hours, in contrast to the Haut-Marbuzet, which was initially a bit closed, but really blossomed with air. This bottle (with a high neck fill and impeccable cork; purchased from the PLCB and kept in a temperature-controlled cellar, unmoved, since release) seemed rather primary still, so my guess is that well stored bottles may need another 5-10 years to hit their peak.

    June 20, 2020 - Fully mature and displaying secondary and tertiary notes, it is very approachable. It possesses good depth and balance with a decent finish. There really is no reason not to be enjoying this now,
