A cozy red wine from Saint-Estèphe

A red wine produced in the Saint-Estèphe appellation, Château Lafon-Rochet is a 4ème cru classé. Aged 40 years on average, the vines enjoy a terroir consisting of deep gravel and gravel on clay. The ageing of the wine is carried out in French oak barrels (of which 50% are new barrels), for 16 to 18 months on average. The blend of the 2007 vintage contains 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc.

Château Lafon-Rochet 2007 reveals a balanced nose, combining freshness and precision. On the palate, it offers tasty touches of spices and white pepper, a magnificent length and enveloping tannins. A cozy wine to consume now or before 2030 (tasted in 2015 by the estate).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 2007 Bordeaux tasting. The 2007 Lafon Rochet has a lively and fresh bouquet with scents of blackberry, woodland and cigar boxùharmonious and gaining intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, crisp acidity and fine cohesion. It might lack a little weight and it's unapologetically foursquare, but it has a sense of style and class. Tasted March 2015.
