91-93* Parker: "Perhaps the finest Lafon Rochet ever made, the purity, freshness, and sweet, rich, blueberry and boysenberry fruit and hint of pen ink that are found in this opaque purple-colored wine are impressive. Massive in the mouth, with freshness, delineation, and sweet tannin, it is a major sleeper of the vintage that should last for 25+ years. (Tasted two times.)"
92-94 Falstaff: "Fallstaff-Tipp in Saint-Estèphe ...Balsamische Nuancen, zart nach Dörrobst, florale Noten, Mandarinentsten. Komplex, süße Zwetschkenfrucht, Brombeergelee, extraktsüß, feines mineralisches Gerüst, Nougat im Abgang, sehr gute Länge, großes Entwicklungspotenzial."
91-94 IWC: "Good full purple-tinged ruby. Spicy red cherry, cedar, tar, ash and incense on the nose, complicated by a hint of coffee reduction. Then more restrained and refined in the mouth, with terrific depth and freshness to the smoky blackberry, dark plum and mineral flavors. Sound acids give this fleshy wine admirable clarity and cut on the long, youthfully tannic finish. This very pure, dense wine appears to be one of the most accomplished Lafon-Rochet."
