2010 Château Lafon-Rochet, Cru Classé St-Estèphe

The vineyards of Lafon-Rochet are just on the other side of the communal border from Château Lafite and, under the supervision of Basile Tesseron, the wines show off the terroir of St Estèphe. Rich and ripe on the nose, it shows a core of beautifully spicy black fruit, with an impressive balance and tight tannic structure. This should age very gracefully indeed.
