1959 Chateau Lafon-Rochet

Post by AHB » 11:24 Sat 02 May 2015

Dark chestnut brown, opaque at the centre. Balsamic vinegar on the nose, spoiled and oxidised. On the palate this is more acceptable with some depth and sweetness but the tannins are dry and bitter, and the volatility never goes away. The aftertaste and finish are quite pleasant. 72/100. Drunk 15-Apr-15.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927

1959 Chateau Lafon-Rochet: nose very stinky; palate of marzipan. Not drinkable.
