Château Lafon Rochet, 4ème Cru Classé, St Estèphe, 2015

Tasting Note:

Basile Tesseron's fourth growth estate, which borders Chateau Lafite, is making great progress. There has been a great deal more precision in the winemaking in recent years and we feel that this is an estate worth watching. After a slightly lacklustre 2014, the 2015 is very promising indeed. Produced from 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. A beautifully floral bouquet of classy menthol cassis fruit and violets leads to a cool, suave, dark fruited palate. There is impressive extract with classical nuances and no unwanted flavours. The tannins are really refined and coated with pure fruit. A return to form!
