Chateau Lafon Rochet 2005
|Producent||Chateau Lafon Rochet|
|Streek||Bordeaux, St. Estephe|
|Bordeaux Blend, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot|
Dense ruby/purple and still youthful and exuberant, with oodles of cassis and incense, the 2005 Lafon-Rochet is medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannin and a long finish. Just becoming approachable, this wine should continue to drink well for another 10-15 years.
Winespectator / James Suckling (90)
Has notes of blackberry, with Indian spices and green tea. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins, a silky texture and a medium finish. Balanced and very refined. A beautiful young wine.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
