Although the summer 2014 was quite gloomy, the situation was improved by very good weather at the end of August, and during September and October. The 2014 Lafon-Rochet seduces by its freshness, concentration, vibrancy and generous fruit. This dark, red coloured Saint-Estèphe appeals by its intense aromatic expression. The attack is marked by a solid acidity and leads to an almost tender mid-palate with fine-grained, very elegant tannins. This Saint-Estèphe is remarkably soft, unlike usual Saint-Estèphe wines, almost like a Saint-Julien. This wine is a success, it has a good potential!
