Château Lafon-Rochet 2014 is a magnificentSaint Estèpheof great freshness, with beautiful fruit notes and perfect amplitude. The dress is dark worthy of the greatest wines of Saint-Estèphe. On the palate, a beautiful acidity gives way to an almost tender mid-palate, with fine, elegant and creamy tannins. It is a vintage of rare elegance for a Saint-Estèphe, Eyes closed one could imagine this Château Lafon-Rochet 2014 in the heart of the appellation Saint Julien. One of the most beautiful successes of the Château and the appellation on the vintage.
90/100 Robert 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.
Le conseil de 12bouteilles: Decant to enjoy the explosive aromas, Serve cool around 17 ° C. It will accompany perfectly your grills.
