    June 4, 2016 - Great bottle. Well past its prime, however nice color, notes of leather and slight fruit. Very smooth and glad to have three more.

  • Xavier Auerbach wrote: 86 points

    January 19, 1995 - On the nose peppery and a bit old-fashioned, lacks some fruit, has spices and cedary notes; elegant and lively but also a bit skinny and austere, could do with more flesh, quite tannic too; good length but drying.

    (Château Lafon-Rochet) Group's #8 (my #8) – 100 pts; 0, 0, 0, 10 – Medium red color with clear meniscus; strong beef jerky nose that changes to a murky beef stew nose after 30 minutes in the glass; tangy, over-the-hill, tart palate; medium-plus finish
