K&L Notes

92-94 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2018 Lafon-Rochet was picked from 24 September to 13 October, matured in concrete and stainless steel vats and reaching 14.50% alcohol. It has a complex bouquet, a mélange of red and black fruit mixed with a little aniseed. It is pretty and winsome. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chalky tannin, a fine bead of acidity and perhaps what distinguishes this vintage for myself is the precision on the silky-smooth finish. Even compared to the previous vintage, this shows a little more tension and pixelation, a fine sapidity that comes through on the aftertaste. Good potential." (11/2019)

    On the nose, dark cherries, violets, cassis, licorice, and graphite. On the palate the wine is young and concentrated with dark cherry and blackberry fruit, and framed by subtle notes of oak in the form of toast, cloves, and sweet cinnamon. The tannins are grippy and give rigid structure, and the finish shows impressive length already.

    Very showy and open on the nose. This wine has perfumed black currants to spare and not shy with the oak, but still very well integrated. Solid medium body and perfect black fruit ripeness- no over-ripensess in the mouth. A round, plump finish.

    No question in my mind one of the vintages greatest values. Big wine, grapey fruit, long on the palate with sweet fleshy texture all in good balance. Complete wine! 2 Stars! Ralph Sands
