A well-made sleeper of the vintage, Lafon Rochet’s 2011 exhibits a dense ruby/plum color in addition to sweet cassis, earth and spice notes, medium body, excellent depth and light to moderate tannin. It should drink nicely for a decade or more. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

A blend of 33% Merlot and practically the rest is Cabernet Sauvignon. This sample does not include the vin de presse that was a little too rough at the moment, though usually it constitutes 3-4%. It has a ripe blackberry and briary bouquet with very fine delineation with a hint of oyster shell. The palate has a little hardness and grittiness on the entry and slightly brusque tannins. It is missing a little substance in the middle and second half, where the vin de presse might add a little weight. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Kirsch and dark plum fruit is succulent, and offset nicely by brisk, chalky minerality, which gives a good driven feel to the finish. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Very well extracted blackcurrant fruit, rich yet firm, still showing some hard edges, but very good middle fruit for the future. Drink 2016-2028. Decanter.com

Deep in color with coffee, smoke and black cherry scents. Ripe tannins and sweet, ripe black cherry and plums are found in the round finish. theWineCellarInsider.com

Firm and tightly wound but with a nice burst of juicy, fresh cassis fruit beneath. Classic in a good way.
