Chateau Lafon-Rochet has smooth tannins, beautiful balance, a silky texture, and is altogether sensual. Just as grandma's old apple tree at the bottom of the garden has tastier apples, grapes from old vines product wine with more flavor and concentration. Although they produce less, their fruit reflects the terroir more faithfully. Lafron-Rochet is both simple and complex, with black fruit aromas in most vintages. It exemplifies a smoothness and expression unique to Saint-Estephe, as well as a certain warmth and elegant roundness due to the Merlot grape.
"This wine has richness, weight and dark tannins, with balanced fruit and a ripe mouthfeel. It’s powered by spice and blackberry flavors.Barrel Sample: 93-95 Points"
"Kirsch and dark plum fruit is succulent, and offset nicely by brisk, chalky minerality, which gives a good driven feel to the finish.Barrel Sample:89–92"
"Deep, fully saturated purple-ruby. Herbs, coffee, blackberry and minerals on the nose. Enters rich dense and juicy, but turns austere on the back end, finishing with moderately complex blackberry and blackcurrant flavors and good persistence. The finish is clean and pure, no easy accomplishment due to the hail that hit the vineyards at the beginning of September. This is very well made but lacks a little generosity. Basil Tesseron and his father Michel did a great job in this difficult year: stay tuned for some exciting developments at this property in the near future.Barrel Sample: 87-90 Points"
