Château Lafon-Rochet 2017 – Saint-Estèphe, 4ème Grand Cru Classé

The nose is fruity and offers concentration and power. It reveals notes of blackberry, wild strawberry and small notes of ripe blackcurrant associated with touches of small wild berries as well as hints of liquorice, Sichuan pepper and very discreet hints of dry tobacco leaf, graphite and incense. The mouth is fruity, fresh, well-balanced and offers a good definition, gourmandize, an acidulous/juicy frame, a very fine unctuosity as well as tension. On the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy/juicy red cherry, fleshy/juicy blackcurrant and small notes of violet associated with fine hints of small red berries, liquorice, nutmeg and Sichuan pepper. Tannins are well-built. There are slight toasted notes, hazelnut and caramelization on the finish/persistence.
