Lafon Rochet,  (St. Estephe) - 2008

Tasting Note

Blueberry and blackberry aromas follow through to a full body with licorice and dried currant. Chewy and tannic yet the tannins are polished... (more...). Very good for the vintage.Wine Spectator (88-90 pts)Lafon Rochet’s backward unevolved 2008 exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with loads of ripe tannin. While still austere and not expressing itself as impressively as I would have hoped there is a lot here. Consequently my judgment is somewhat conservative and reserved until this wine has had more time in the barrel.Robert Parker Wine AdvocateWe will notify you on arrival Summer 2011.
