    In a few words ...

    Issus des vignes les plus anciennes du vignoble, ils donnent moins de fruits, mais offrent une plus grande complexité. Le Lafon-Rochet est un vin à la fois simple et complexe, il exprime des arômes de fruits noirs dans la majorité des millésimes. Il existe véritablement un fondu et une expression propre à Saint-Estèphe, une certaine chaleur et une rondeur tout en finesse nées du cépage Merlot. J. Suckling : 93-94/100

    Tasting notes

    Appearance

    Dense, dark garnet color, drawing on purple in its youth.

    Aroma

    The bouquet reveals notes of cassis, violet, mocha, vanilla, spices and licorice.

    Wine Empyreumatic | Fruity | Roasted | Smoked

    Taste

    The wines of Saint-Estèphe have strong tannins and thus reach their maturity more slowly than most other medals. They offer black fruits, a note of freshness, often a woody or smoky aspect and a floral touch.

    Wine Elegant | Fruity | Long | Tannic | Wooden
