1959 Chateau Lafon-Rochet

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

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 2023: Taylor 1896 Colheita, b. 2021. A perfect Port.

2024: Niepoort 1900 Colheita, b.1971. A near perfect Port.

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