Tasting Notes

"The opaque purple-hued 2012 Lafon Rochet reveals plenty of incense, blueberry, black raspberry and spring flower notes intermixed with a hint of forest floor. Rich and medium to full-bodied, it is a complete wine from beginning to end. It may tighten up once it’s in bottle, but this wine has 15 or more years of cellaring potential. This superb effort is a major sleeper of the vintage. Made from a final blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, it boasts 13.5% natural alcohol and was made by Basile Tesseron, whose family owns this Château as well as the well-known Pontet Canet. Like his uncle Alfred, Basile has moved to biodynamic farming." - Robert Parker Jr., The Wine Advocate (4/24/2013, Issue 206), Rating: 90-92, Drink from: 2015-2023
