"61% Merlot, 33% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc. Dark cedary berry fruit aromas, with a red cherry lift. The medium bodied palate’s crunchy, perfume-infused pure red and black berry fruit reticent but just-so, framed by gently-extracted tannins. An earlier drinking Lafon-Rochet, adapted to the 2021 season.
