Château Lafon-Rochet Grand Cru Classé en 1855 - Saint Estèphe

Grape Varieties

31% Merlot, 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot 


Tasting

Possesses a complex and highly perfumed nose of red fruits, ripe vineyard peachs and spicy notes (black pepper and nutmeg). The structure is balanced and elegant throughout. The tannins are fine, with a finish that mirrors the initial fragrant fruit noise. 


Vintage

2008


Pairing

Lafon Rochet is best served with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted braised and grilled dishes. Lafon Rochet is also quite good with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta. (thewinecellarinsider)

Winemaker Notes

The grapes follow the same grandmother’s recipe for the cultivation of old apple trees, of which apples have more taste, a genuine flavour and a very particular length that is not only due to the variety but at the age of this apple tree.
Coming from the oldest wines of the vineyard, they bear less fruit, but offer greater complexity. Lafon-Rochet is a wine that is both simple and complex, it expresses aromas of black fruit in most vintages. There is truly a blend and features specific to Saint-Estèphe, a certain warmth and roundness, full of delicacy coming from Merlot’s grape variety.
