Chateau Lafon Rochet is a wine that is both simple and complex, it expresses aromas of black fruits in the majority of vintages, there is really a fade and a particular expression of Saint-Estephe, a certain warmth and roundness while finesse from the Merlot grape variety.
The 2010 wine with a charming nose that is fresh and even more intense than that of our 2009 vintage. We
love its roundness and finesse. While maintaining all the classic characteristics of St Estèphe, there is
a fine balance between alcohol, acidity and rich tannins. This vintage offers immense pleasure, with
very good ageing potential .
Tasting notes, the Wine Advocate, 94 points
Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Lafon-Rochet comes bounding out of the glass with sit-up-and-beg notes of crème de cassis, blackberry pie and blueberry preserves followed by suggestions of Chinese five spice, potpourri and tilled soil. Full-bodied and concentrated, with loads of black and blue fruit layers, it has a rock-solid backbone of grainy tannins and compelling freshness, finishing long and fragrant.
