Château Lafon-Rochet Red Bordeaux Blend St. Estèphe 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes :A big time sleeper of the vintage, the noteworthy 2004 Lafon-Rochet boasts an inky/blue/purple color, sweet aromas of creme de cassis intermixed with smoke, licorice, and toasty new oak, a ripe, medium to full-bodied style, sweet tannin, and loads of flavor as well as depth. This beauty can be consumed now and over the next 14-15 years.

The origin of the “Rochet” name lies quite obviously in the word “roches”, as in the “rocks” that make up the soil of the Lafon-Rochet domain. Over the course of thousands of years, crumbling rocks from the far-off Massif Central and Pyrenee mountains were ferried by the Dordogne and Garonne rivers, eroded into pebbles and deposited in the limestone subsoil of Saint-Estèphe, creating a landscape of gentle, well-drained hills featuring a deep layer of gravel. The Lafon-Rochet domain sits on soil covered by a layer of gravel dating back to the period formerly know as the Quaternary (Günz) and features a mixture of quartz, gritstone, silex, volcanic lydianite, millstone grit, sand and clay. The diverse composition of its gravel layer combined with its excellent natural drainage system make the Lafon-Rochet domain a truly exceptional terroir. With its vast estate of 40 hectares, the Château Lafon-Rochet is one of the great ambassadors of the Saint-Estèphe appellation. Ideally situated between the Lafite-Rothschild and Cos d’Estournel properties, it can proudly boast of its prime location in one of the world’s most prestigious winegrowing neighborhoods. Read less
