    A beautifully built and structured red wine from Saint-Estèphe

    Château Lafon-Rochet is a 4ème cru classé produced in the Saint-Estèphe appellation. This red wine is made from vines aged 40 years on average, planted on deep gravel and gravel on clay. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for an average of 16 to 18 months, with a proportion of 50% new barrels. The 2006 vintage blends 53% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

    At tasting, the Château Lafon-Rochet 2006 reveals a pleasant, open, fruity and woody nose, releasing aromas of fresh pepper. The palate is nice and elegant. The attack is initially subtle before the mid-palate and finish show great power. This wine offers a magnificent build and a fantastic structure with fruity, smoky and saline flavors. To consume now (tasted in 2015 by the estate).

    Parker : 88 / 100
    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Earthy, autumnal, vegetative notes intermixed with sweet cola, black cherry, and black currant are present in this dense purple-colored wine. Firm tannins are present, but the wine has excellent fruit, depth, and texture. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2022.
