1995 Lafon-Rochet, St-Estèphe

SKU #110339 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This wine may merit an outstanding score after several more years in the bottle. Although it has closed down since bottling, it is an impressively endowed, rich, sweet cassis smelling and tasting Lafon-Rochet. The wine's impressively saturated deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by vanillin, earth, and spicy scents, medium to full body, excellent to outstanding richness, and moderate tannin in the powerful, well-delineated finish. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2018. The Tesseron family, who have done so much to propel Pontet-Canet into the limelight, continue to upgrade the quality of Lafon-Rochet. The above effort is a tannic, backward wine that will require patience. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/1998)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Very good deep ruby-red. Smoke and currants on the nose. Black raspberry, minerals and graphite on the palate. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/1998)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A little herbal, with tobacco and berry character, medium to full body and a silky finish. (JS, Web-2007) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

This wine resembles the 1995 Pontet-Canet (which is also made by the Tesseron family) in the fruit, but is just a tad softer. It has an intriguing nuance of oriental spice and fine balance. It also needs some time in the cellar.
