    (Chateau Lafon-Rochet St Estèphe) Sweet and aromatic fruit, bright, gravelly, lifted, vibrant but not confected. Red fruit character, with notes of chalky redcurrant. Nice texture, supple weight and firm tannins at the core. A very well composed palate, a good presence in keeping with the seam of tannins beneath, and nicely firm acidity. A little gravelly, not really exciting but this is certainly very typical of the appellation, of good quality and very likely to give some very rewarding drinking in the future I would think.

    (Chateau Lafon-Rochet St Estèphe) This has a lovely, characterful, smoky nose full of dense, pure fruit. The palate is dark and extracted, and has a rather chunky style. There are piles of extract which dominate the palate, and the acidity is shifted a little towards the low side. It has a good density, but a very big, chewy, warm vintage style which may hold this back from greatness.

    (Chateau Lafon-Rochet St Estèphe) A vibrant red-purple hue with, with a blue rim. There is a lot of toffee-oak on the nose here, with sweet, rather damsony fruit, and yet it maintains an appealing freshness. Full and grippy palate, showing plenty of ripe and rather soft tannin, although all smothered in jammy damsons. Not the finest example of Lafon-Rochet, but close in quality to the 2003. Good.
