    (Chateau Lafon-Rochet (St Estèphe)) This wine is dark and yet vibrant in terms of hue, a touch more so than Cos Labory which I tasted alongside. There is a really attractive fruit intensity here, vivacious, expressive and certainly concentrated. Wow - this wine makes a real impact. The fruit quality on the palate is one of creamed forest fruits, with a well-described frame, and freshening acidity at the fore. Behind all this, nicely covered up, there sit some thick and velvety tannins. An impressive concentration and tannic feel here. A delicious wine, just a touch chewy in the finish. This is another real success for this commune. Well done!

    (Château Lafon Rochet (St Estèphe)) A barrel sample drawn on October 7th, 2011. Despite it having been drawn quite a few days ago this is not at all tired. There is fabulous purity of fruit here. It is aromatic, rich but precise, linear but well filled out. It shows a dark and concentrated richness. The palate has the same character, linear, composed, direct, firm but with elegant flesh. Solid tannins in the midpalate which is the main difference between this and 2009 I think. This will evolve with a long plateau I think. Brilliant. Tasted with Basile at Lafon-Rochet.
