Winedoctor

    (Château Lafon-Rochet (St Estèphe)) Cabernet Sauvignon 64%, Merlot 33%, Petit Verdot 3%. A remarkably dense dark hue here, deep although not quite opaque. A dark fruit character to this wine on the nose, concentrated dark plum skin, showing great depth of flavour but also some lift and fresh, appropriately ripe fruit. And then, strangely (if you weren't aware of how the vintage has panned out) the palate has a much leaner, cool-year style than expected. The fruit here does not have the same brightness either, instead showing a lightly meaty edge, lacking freshness and purity, and the structure is really quite firm. The tannins, ripe and densely velvety, are really quite dominant, coming through the substance of the palate and dominating the finish with a big, chewy style. Dark and extracted.
