Château Lafon-Rochet Grand Cru classé en 1855

The Pèlerins

The Pèlerins, the second wine of the great Lafon-Rochet, is an easy and more affordable wine.

Coming from the youngest vines, we could call it a wine of approach, a kind of initiation before the great wine! It is drunk faster, it is useless to wait decades before tasting it. Fresh and simple, he nevertheless enjoys the same care as his elder.

A fresh and complex nose, with predominant notes of red and dark fruit, is bold and powerful in the mouth. Typical of a great Saint Estèphe, the wine is remarkably elegant and rich in tannins, but with a fine suppleness that makes it immediately accessible. The bouquet offers aromas of fruit and spices, with a stylish finish.

An attractive nose with a character that resonates the style of the wine in the mouth, notably of perfectly ripe cabernet. The balance is pleasing, offering silky, tight tannins with a note of acidity on the finish.

A full nose with aromas of ripe fruit that complement the characteristics of the wine in the mouth: freshness and sweetness with pleasing, textured tannins. The wine is supple with a full-bodied mouth-feel that is lifted by a touch of acidity. We find aromas of red berries, cherry liqueur and raspberries. The finish is long and smooth.

The nose is precise, oaky, with notes of cedar. In the mouth, the wine is fruity, tight and fresh. The tannins are pleasant and soft. Our 2007 vintage will perfectly complement grilled meats and stews.
We would recommend opening the wine and decanting prior to tasting
