Château Lafon-Rochet

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2001

2001 Lafon-Rochet
Saint Estephe

Inky black with cassis, black currant and blackberry. Black pepper and lavender with a whiff of smoke and graphite. Plum and vine charcoal give a softness to the tannin which is amazingly strong. Graphite shimmers through dark cocoa, cedar and pepper. Lovely and lively.

Color is holding well with a light ruby core fading to a light red rim. Mellow intensity and med complexity with classic #bordeaux notes. Palate not showing as well as nose. Firm structure and medium finish. #lafonrochet #stestephe #ctbucklinwine — 7 years ago

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2001

Tons to unwind here. Black and green olives, clay and uncooked peat, multi grain bread, pecan, black sesame, mushroom fricassee, grilled filet with beurre blanc and jus. Sage, mint, and tarragon. All cohesively woven together; immaculate. That’s just the nose. Graphite and oak pencil the initial signature, which delineates the oeuvre. The cherry life cycle, from underripe to dried expressed in black and red; still-grainy tannins supporting. Raspberry tart, briary berrries. Rooibos tea, cinnamon and clove. Impeccable.

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1995

In perfect drinking condition, excellent. Forest floor, iron, the smell of a cracked cacao bar, savory spice and believe it or not a tad of blue cheese. Good palate intensity that is precise and controlled, medium to fine tannins caress the haunting dried fruit and savory long and fresh finish. #bluesheeseinmywinearoma #stestephe #lafonrochet — 10 years ago

Les Pelerins de Lafon-Rochet St. Estèphe Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

A hard, black knotted knee of bramble smolders. Dried blackberries crammed into its expressive creases. Black currants, dusty truffles, dried and flaking violets, touches of blueberry and raspberry. Horsehair and lilacs.
Courteously smooth with undulating tannins. Sensual. Black olive thoroughbred snorts through the smoldering, charcoal rears, graphite crackles, and tobacco and chocolate hybridize. Bridled with leather, and kid leather textures, rosemary wood, shrubbings and toothy-tart cranberry; Finish coaxing even the imaginative sense.
