IWC 91
Stephen Tanzer's IWC, June 2008
Good red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of musky currant black raspberry camphor and tobacco leaf. Round and plump for St. Estephe with noteworthy volume and seamless texture; sweeter by far than the chateau's 2007 or 2006... Good red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of musky currant black raspberry camphor and tobacco leaf. Round and plump for St. Estephe with noteworthy volume and seamless texture; sweeter by far than the chateau's 2007 or 2006 samples but possesses harmonious framing acidity. Finishes with broad tannins that arrive late. A big success.

Dense ruby/purple and still youthful and exuberant, with oodles of cassis and incense, the 2005 Lafon-Rochet is medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannin and a long finish. Just becoming approachable, this wine should continue to drink well for another 10-15 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Wine Spectator, March 2008
Has notes of blackberry with Indian spices and green tea. Full-bodied with velvety tannins a silky texture and a medium finish. Balanced and very refined. A beautiful young wine. Best after 2011. -JS
