2014 Lafon-Rochet 75CL
The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannins. This feels quite dense in the mouth, a welcome pinch of white pepper and cedar lending complexity to the finish with tart cherries on the aftertaste.
This is probably more forward than other Saint-Estephe wines, but it should give 15-20 years of pleasure.
“Medoc means "amid the waters", a strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Gironde estuary to the east. The Medoc is a one-of-a-kind terroir that you need to understand if you want to get the most out of it, an exceptional and demanding terroir.
At Lafon-Rochet, 41 hectares of vines cover two outcrops in Saint-Estephe. On one side, gravel ensures excellent natural drainage; on the other, clay regulates and excess or lack of water, providing the vines with what they need.”
