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.

Wine EnthusiastA sinuous line of tannins runs through this structured wine. It lifts the dark plum and berry fruits and give shape to the spicy, firm wine. As the estate builds in strength, the style of this perfumed, stylish wine will be seen as a benchmark. Drink from 2025.

Wine AdvocateThe medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Lafon-Rochet is reduced on the nose to begin, with tar and earth aromas over black fruits and herbs. The medium-bodied palate is vibrant and refreshing with firm, grainy tannins.

Wine SpectatorFresh and pure, with a beam of cassis, lilac, alder and iron notes that are nicely integrated. Shows polished edges on the finish, with a flash of austerity. The only knock is a lack of overall energy and depth. Everything is here, just at a slightly reduced level. Drink now through 2030. 9,167 cases made.
