Description of Chateau Lafon-Rochet 2023

The Chateau Lafon-Rochet 2023 began with an early vine cycle, marked by budburst starting on April 11. Flowering occurred in the last two weeks of May under mild weather conditions. This was followed by a more challenging fruit set and berry enlargement period in June and July, which were hotter and wetter than usual for the season.

The spring weather, warmer and just as wet as in previous years, aligned this vintage with those influenced by global warming, presenting an additional challenge for the vineyard, which was in its final year of organic conversion.

Despite these complexities, 2023 was a generous vintage in terms of volume, benefiting from excellent ripening conditions. Early tastings reveal fresh, fruity Merlot with a delightful balance, while the Cabernets are powerful, rich, and elegantly tannic.
