Lafon-Rochet is both simple and complex, with black fruit aromas in most vintages. It exemplifies a smoothness and expression unique to Saint Estephe, as well as a certain warmth and elegant roundness due to the Merlot grape. Just as Grandma's old apple tree at the bottom of the garden has tastier apples, grapes form old vines produce wine with more flavor and concentration. And, although they produce less, their fruit reflects the terroir more faithfully.

This is a chateau that is getting better and better. This 2009 is packed with sweet fruit, impressive tannins and a complex dark structure. It is fruity, yet powerful, for good aging.

Juicy and very lively, with lots of briar, currant, cherry, toasty spice and anise notes all framed by bright floral and iron hints. The long finish has excellent cut and drive. Best from 2013 through 2021. 11,250 cases made.
