    March 10, 2021 - Underrated St Estephe, great complexity and layers of tertiary flavours

    October 20, 2020 - Nice example of an old style Lafon Rochet before they changed their assemblage to be more cabernet dominated. Quite spicy with dark fruits and cigar box on the nose. Grippy tannins give the wine a nice backbone. Drinks good now but should not improve any further.

    January 20, 2020 - Fantastiskt gott! Kände ingen ålderströtthet. Mkt frukt och syra kvar. Tanninerna klart angenäma.
    Gott utan mat där det i jämförelse med Cos D’Estournel var mer tillgängligt. Dekanterades 2,5 h innan servering.

    Gott till mat med. Helstekt entrecôte, rödvinsås och svamprisotto.

    December 14, 2019 - Nose: some nice wooden notes, meaty, earthy and some dark fruits, surprisingly fresh
    On the palate: very juicy, creamy, some acidity, well integrated tannins. long aromatic finish, good to drink now with decanting, will not improve but still enough time to wait

    October 22, 2017 - Not quite as good as the last bottle but this time, it was tasted alongside the 04, which had better fruit and better precision, so perhaps the direct comparison did it no favours.
