Saint-Estèphe Château Lafon Rochet 4Ème Cru Classé 2010

The red and violet edges were visible for me. Smelling it, I noticed the aromas of blackberries.I couldn't find any particular flavour.
It was an excellent accompanist for the main course.
I had it with my friends.

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.

Château Lafon-Rochet Saint-Estèphe 2010

Beautiful deep red, clear. Very expressive nose with aromas of roasting, chocolate, enhanced with spicy red fruit. Full and rich, sweet, tinged with notes of ripe fruit, the structured tannins, but flexible. Good length with a large and dense finish. Superb balance.

Château Lafon-Rochet 2010

Lafon-Rochet is now owned by the Tesseron family. Arriving there is little to head the castle, the young and ambitious Tesseron Basile led the forty acres of Lafon Rochet putting vines and grapes in the heart of its concerns. He succeeded with his best year in 2010, qualified wine "revelation" Parker although already of noble rank, to express its progress and good price-pleasure ratio.
Lafon-Rochet 2010 surprised indeed by its beautiful bouquet of violet, blueberry pie, blackberry liqueur, wet stone and spice. He then impresses with its sleek structure, large, wide, deep, its ripe fruit, rich and pure.

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.
