2014 Saint-Estèphe, from Bordeaux

Although the summer 2014 was quite gloomy, the situation was improved by very good weather at the end of August, and during September and October. The 2014 Lafon-Rochet seduces by its freshness, concentration, vibrancy and generous fruit. This dark, red coloured Saint-Estèphe appeals by its intense aromatic expression. The attack is marked by a solid acidity and leads to an almost tender mid-palate with fine-grained, very elegant tannins. This Saint-Estèphe is remarkably soft, unlike usual Saint-Estèphe wines, almost like a Saint-Julien. This wine is a success, it has a good potential

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Lafon Rochet has a very attractive, slightly floral bouquet with raspberry and crushed strawberry fruit, a touch of rose petals lending this a feminine allure. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannins. This feels quite dense in the mouth, a welcome pinch of white pepper and cedar lending complexity to the finish with tart cherries on the aftertaste. This is probably more forward than other Saint Estephe wines, but it should give 15-20 years of pleasure.
