Chateau Lafon Rochet 2015

 3,985.00

The 2015 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 red wine 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. The Chateau Lafon Rochet 2015 is probably more forward than other Saint Estephe wines, but it should give 15-20 years of pleasure. Drink 2019-2034.

Chateau Lafon-Rochet is a 4th classified growth produced in the Saint-Estephe appellation. Aged 30 years on average, the vineyard extends over a total area of 40 hectares and benefits from a terroir composed of deep gravel and gravel over clay. The aging of the wine is carried out in barrels (of which 50% are new), over a period ranging from 14 to 16 months, depending on the year. The vintage 2015 blends 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.
