Château Lafon Rochet, 4ème Cru Classé, St Estèphe, 2014

Tasting Note:

Basile Tesseron's fourth growth estate, which borders Chateau Lafite was making great progress. There was a great deal more precision in the winemaking and we felt that this was an estate worth watching. It feels like this was either unfulfilled potential or they have just taken their foot of the pedal somewhat. Creamy, sweet, crème de mûre notes, very cool with hints of earth with mulberry fruit and cocoa nibs on the palate. It's not heavily extracted but comes across as a bit rustic.
