WE 90
Wine Enthusiast, April 2011
Dark tannins provide the structured for the Cabernet Sauvignon black currant flavors. It has power-this is a big and solid wine given tension by tannins that will take several years to soften out. R.V.

59% Cabernet Sauvignon & 39% Merlot (which leaves 2% to the "other" category) this is the first vintage of Lafon-Rochet to be mainly Cabernet Sauvignon. This sits right in the middle of Cos d'Estournel and Chateau... 59% Cabernet Sauvignon & 39% Merlot (which leaves 2% to the "other" category) this is the first vintage of Lafon-Rochet to be mainly Cabernet Sauvignon. This sits right in the middle of Cos d'Estournel and Chateau Lafite-Rothschild. A perfect example of a St. Estephe that blooms in the glass-starting with damp earth it yields to classic Cabernet flavors of cassis and dusty spice becoming prettier and prettier with air. This features a very balanced palate and good concentration and sweet fine tannins. I'd hold until 2014 and then drink over the next ten years.
