This great wine comes from the oldest vines in the vineyard, which bear less fruit but offer greater complexity just like an old apple tree at the bottom of a grandmother’s garden whose apples taste better not just because of the variety but also because of the age of the tree
Lafon-Rochet is both a simple yet complex wine. Most vintages mix black fruit aromas and truly possess the blend and features specific to Saint-Estèphe – a certain warmth and roundness, full of delicacy coming from the Merlot grape variety.
Les Pélerins de LAFON-ROCHET
Les Pèlerins, the second wine of Lafon-Rochet is an easy and approachable wine, produced from younger vines but made with the same care as the first wines.
It is sometimes seen as a sort of initiation before tasting the ”Grand Vin” of the estate. You do not need to wait for years before opening a bottle. No need to decant it, just enjoy its simple, elegant and fresh aromas.
