    June 27, 2018 - A sturdy 4th Growth with good fruit, earthy notes and nice medium tannins. A winner when you want Left Bank Bordeaux at more reasonable prices...especially in Thailand. 2007 sipping well now.

    July 11, 2017 - Fragrant and earthy with graphite and cedar mingling about the soft cherry fruit. I get the signature Lafon Rochet cigar note here, but it's quite subtle reflecting the difficult year. Light for a St. Estephe, there are some sappy tannins and nice acid. This is drinking nicely now.

    July 7, 2017 - A lot of development on the nose: leather, pencil shavings. On the palate missing the acidity to give it structure. Still fruit flavours and some tannins are there but will it have the ability to age without the acidity. I doubt it. I'd drink up over the next 3 years

    March 30, 2017 - The debut vintage for the young Basile Tesseron, the wine is developed with forest, tobacco, plum and old wood characteristics. Medium bodied, soft and light in fruit, this requires drinking sooner than later to grab the remainder of the fruit.
