|The blend of the 2005 vintage contains 49% Merlot 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc
Wonderful complex aromas of underbrush, melted liquorice, black fruits and tree bark. Smoothed and polished tannins. Starting to drink now.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Dense ruby/purple and still youthful
and exuberant, with oodles of cassis and incense, the 2005 Lafon-Rochet
is medium to full-bodied, with ripe tannin and a long finish. Just
becoming approachable, this wine should continue to drink well for
another 10-15 years.
