Chateau LafonRochet 2006
Tasting notes Chateau LafonRochet 4eme Grand Cru Classe 2006. Superbly situated adjacent to both Lafite Rothschild and CosDEstournel. 40% of production allocated to second wine. 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2%Petit Verdot. There is impressive weight & structure here, a deep, powerful wine with lots of black fruit and some solid tannins at the finish - very good value. Drink 2012
I had some bottle variation with this blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

Description and Reviews: Parker 87 points.

Description of this Saint-Estèphe The Château Lafon-Rochet is one of those great and famous Saint-Estèphe. The soil is made of deep gravels and chalk. The Cabernet Sauvignon is here at its best, the Merlot is more discreet. The colour of the 2006 vintage is deep and intense. The nose is very fruity with jammy fruit flavours and blackcurrant. The mouth is full and well-balanced. It is long-lasting on the palate and will need several years of cellaring to reveal its full potential.
