Impressive new vinification improvements recently finished at Lafon-Rochet. As well, is their 2015. Gorgeous fruit and beautiful purple florals. A Chateau to keep on eye on going forward.

Slight oak aroma. Gentle and smooth soon after opening. Enough concentration. Mild tanning, slight acidic and spicy. Black berry and other fruits. 2015 in 2020. So it has good potential. 9.0+ 0.1 for its potential. Day2, aroma is much better with oak. Spiciness is much comfortable. Mid + body. @1690, Eva - XH, 200912-201022
Even in 2015, very smooth 2 hours after opening. Mid body’s concentration. Gentle and ample aroma. @1710, xiaduo - AC, 211103

Wow. Flavorful, smooth and well bodied. You should treat yourself.

Tight, tannic, acidic, with fruit on the nose; cab franc pretty apparent. Clearly a very young Bordeaux, but not sure that it’ll integrate well over time. Fun to drink now.
