2003 Lafon-Rochet, St-Estèphe

SKU #1079398 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Decadent and rich with a meaty and ripe fruit aroma. Full, dense, and juicy, with round, velvety tannins, and a long finish. A big burly wine. Pull the cork after 2015, this needs the time. Inner quote mark (3/2011)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good deep red-ruby. Extravagantly ripe, exotic aromas of roasted dark fruits and roasted meat. Large-scaled, fat and full, with atypical sweetness nicely leavened by harmonious acidity. Creamy, dense and full for Lafon-Rochet. Finishes with smooth tannins and excellent palate-saturating length. A great vintage for this chateau. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2006)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very exciting aromas of crushed blackberry and lightly smoky barrels. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a medium finish. A bit tight but balanced. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2006)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Fully mature, round, soft and reasonably complex, the 2003 Lafon Rochet exhibits notes of cedarwood, licorice, Christmas fruitcake, red and black fruits. The tannins are resolved in this medium-bodied, low acid St.-Estephe, so enjoy it over the next 4-5 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/2014)
