Lafon Rochet 2013

This wine is a true standout with a deep ruby hue and youthful appearance. Its pure fruit and violet reflections add a unique charm that is hard to resist. While somewhat restrained, the oak reveals hints of red berry confit and candied orange zest, adding a delightful twist. The palate has a delightful blend of sour cherries, a tannic structure, and a chocolaty finish that is a true delight. As the bottle breathes, it transforms into a medley of cassis, dark cherry fruit, and aromatic herbs, creating a unique and complex flavour profile. The fresh acidity and ripe tannins create a balanced, lingering taste that is hard to forget. This wine has the potential to age beautifully, promising even more refinement with time.

The wine has received favourable scores, with the highest rating of 92 from the esteemed Wine Enthusiast. Their review is summarized as follows:

This estate, part of the same family that owns the esteemed Château Pontet-Canet, is continuously improving. The 2013 vintage is a testament to this: its ripe fruit, delicious acidity, and a firm, dry backdrop of solid tannins. It's a wine meant to be savoured, and we recommend enjoying it from 2020 onwards.
