Château Lafon Rochet 2005

Sweet black fruits intermixed with weedy tobacco, licorice, and leather characteristics; medium-bodied and powerful, with excruciating tannin, but promising potential, patience is most definitely required

It had a wonderful aroma of cherry and red fruit. I like the slight roughness it leaves you on the mouth.
This red is the best I've ever tasted.

Château Lafon-Rochet Bordeaux 2010
The smell of red fruits in the Château Lafon-Rochet Bordeaux is quite obvious. Sweet and lovely.
I really enjoyed it.

Saint-Estèphe Château Lafon Rochet 4Ème Cru Classé 2010
I drank before the main meal, with starters and snacks. The first person who mentioned this wine to me, was my brother.
Brillant ruby red colour, high layer. Smell of coffee or wood. Not the sweetest wine, but kind of.
