Château Lafon-Rochet 2015 – Saint-Estèphe, Grand Cru Classé

Château Lafon-Rochet 2015 – Saint-Estèphe, Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity, fine and elegant. It reveals notes of blackberry, fine notes of cassis and a touch of flowers associated with a hint of Sichuan pepper, Zan and a discreet touch of Ceylon tea. The palate is fruity, gourmand, well-balanced, elegant, harmonious, sleek, tight and offers a beautiful silky matter, a beautiful fine grain, a certain density, a racy mineral frame, freshness and a certain tension. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry, black cherry and blackberry candy associated with touches of raspberry as well as a touch of Zan and a discreet hint of menthol (very discreet). Tannins are fine and elegant. Good length and aromatic persistence. The finish is suave. Beautiful potential!
