Estate Notes

Château Lafon-Rochet, 2009 comes from a great Bordeaux vintage and is a great opportunity to taste a wonderful year at a modest price.

Affectionately referred to as the Laughing Rocket, the estate has seen vast improvement in the quality of its wines since the early 1990s. Under the control of the Tesseron family of Cognac fame, a complete renovation of its cellars and improvements in the decision-making process have been largely responsible for the estate producing claret that is more than worthy of its classification over the last decade or so.

Reviews

"Juicy and very lively, with lots of briar, currant, cherry, toasty spice and anise notes all framed by bright floral and iron hints." Wine Spectator

"Superripe aromas of plum, dark chocolate and menthol. Dense and fine-grained, with good energy to its dark fruit, cinder and woodsmoke flavors. Very glossy in a 2009 way. Finishes rich and ripe, with substantial dusty tannins." Stephen Tanzer
