TASTING NOTES

"The 2015 Lafon-Rochet is gorgeous. Beautifully layered and polished in the glass, the 2015 oozes with pedigree. The flavors are bright and beautifully delineated throughout. Rose petal, mint, savory herb and bright, red-toned fruit add to the wine's vivid, nuanced personality. In 2015, Lafon-Roche is all class. The blend is 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. This is a terrific showing from Basile Tesseron and consulting winemaker Jean-Claude Berrouet."

"Very perfumed with blackberries, blueberries and cloves. Dried lavender as well. Full body and linear and refined tannins. Pretty spices come together with the clean fruit at the end. Hard not to drink now but two or three years of bottle age will pull it together. Drink in 2020." JamesSuckling.com

"The 2015 Lafon-Rochet has a lifted, perfumed bouquet of ample blackberry and raspberry aromas. The oak here is nearly entwined with graphite and cigar box aromas developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine definition, quite filigreed tannin (for a Saint Estèphe) that frame a smooth, quite pure blackberry and strawberry finish with plenty of white pepper on the aftertaste. This is a fine Lafon-Rochet from Basile Tesseron and his team. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting." Neal Martin, Vinous.com

"The medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Lafon-Rochet is reduced on the nose to begin, with tar and earth aromas over black fruits and herbs. The medium-bodied palate is vibrant and refreshing with firm, grainy tannins." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue

"Racy and lively with stones and strong St-Estèphe signature. Dry finish. With lots of personality." JancisRobinson.com
