Château Lafon-Rochet 2010

  • |
  • 4 /5
Lafon-Rochet is now owned by the Tesseron family. Arriving there is little to head the castle, the young and ambitious Tesseron Basile led the forty acres of Lafon Rochet putting vines and grapes in the heart of its concerns. He succeeded with his best year in 2010, qualified wine "revelation" Parker although already of noble rank, to express its progress and good price-pleasure ratio.
Lafon-Rochet 2010 surprised indeed by its beautiful bouquet of violet, blueberry pie, blackberry liqueur, wet stone and spice. He then impresses with its sleek structure, large, wide, deep, its ripe fruit, rich and pure.
