    May 1, 2020 - Tydlig ton av källare och blöt papp stör i nosen och jag trodde vinet var korkat, Men smaken var faktiskt mer än okej med röda bär, ceder och multna löv. En del av källardoften vädrade bort efter en halvtimme men inte helt. Synd på en annars välbehållen åldring.

    November 27, 2014 - Some fruit still left in it. Fun to drink, but not overly compelling. Cork was soaked most thru but was held together.

    May 19, 2014 - Had quite a narrow window. Great on the nose, not as compelling on the palate.

    December 27, 2013 - From magnum. The cork was slightly loose and unfortunately fell into the wine. So, the wine was quickly decanted to minimize contact. Initial bottle stink blew off after 30 minutes. The aromas transformed from cedar to red fruit over a few hours. Most of the structure has subsided leaving only slight fine grained tannin. The wine is medium weight and richly fruited - not unlike a recent bottle of 75 Cos. Great aged Bordeaux. Drink now.

    April 13, 2013 - It's always enjoyable to drink a wine with 30+ years.

    At 11% and a depressed cork I didn't expect the Laffon Rochet to even show up, it did but wasn't the life of the party. Strawberry and an ebbing minerality over two hours. Fun, but not fantastic.
