Château Lafon-Rochet 2011 – Saint-Estèphe, 4ème Grand Cru Classé

The nose is aromatic, elegant and offers power, tension, elegance and a beautiful finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of blackberry, blackcurrant and small notes of ripe wild strawberry, dry violet and small notes of small berries as well as hints of graphite, Cuben pepper, mushroom, dry rose and very discreet hints of spices. The mouth is fruity, fresh, mineral and offers finesse, fat and tension. On the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy/very ripe blackberry, very ripe blackcurrant and small notes of violet associated with touches of liquorice stick, underwood/mushroom as well as fine hints of pepper (in the background). Tannins are well-built, elegant and structuring.
