    January 18, 2021 - Coravin fun - Lafon Rochet (My place, Kent Street): From Coravin. Medium minus intensity aromas initially but grows with time, showing blackcurrant, sweet spice, a little aniseed. After a while it shows cassis, plum and leather in support as well as a little tomato leaf, slight cream and Christmas cake. Changes in the glass to show cedar, very slight caramel as well. In the mouth it's juicy, sweetly fruited then a wash of chalky tannins take over the palate, fruit persists with a little cream, alcohol warmth lends spice, long, finishes, very slightly bitter, savoury. Okay.

    November 24, 2018 - Coravin fun - new arrivals: From Coravin. Cedar, pyrazine, baked earth, plums and ripe blackcurrant, earthy, biscuit, soft and muted on the palate, silky tannins with a gritty core, slightly plummy with a baked quality, cork is immaculate. Hmm

    September 8, 2018 - The wine is clearly after the peak.
    Something without vivacity.... still enjoyable, but not with that charming power of other Bordeaux from the same vintage.

    May 12, 2018 - Typical Bordeuax. Bit short in the middle and finish. prolly better 5 years ago but still very enjoyable.
