Tasting Notes

Spicy, fruity, medium-bodied wine from one of the best value crus classés. Rich and plummy on the nose and carefully extracted on the palate to give a round, harmonious wine. Attractive young but will age gracefully.

Producer details

Lafon-Rochet's vineyards lie on clay-gravel soils and are superbly sited in the south of the commune opposite Château Lafite. The wines are matured in oak barriques (40% new) for 18 months. Lafon-Rochet's wines were, for many years, criticised for being excessively tannic and austere and generally were considered to lack charm. In the last decade or so, improved viticultural techniques and a greater percentage of Merlot in the final blend has led to purer expressions of fruit and the wines being generally more supple and elegant. Lafon-Rochet needs at least 10 years of bottle ageing to show at its best.

In the press

DECANTER - Superbly ripe Cabernet fruit and lush yet firm flavours and perfect tannins make this an explosively good wine for the medium and long term. Drink 2017-30. (Steven Spurrier - Decanter - May 2011)
