Vinous, Antonio Galloni: 95 Points

(1/2019) "A sleeper in this vintage, the 2016 Lafon-Rochet is positively stellar. Bright, translucent and super-expressive, the 2016 has so much to offer. Lavender, tobacco, cedar, mint and dried herbs give the 2016 striking aromatic top notes to play off the darker fruit flavors. The 2016 is pure class. Don't miss it. Drinking window: 2024 - 2041."

Wine Enthusiast: 94 Points

(5/1/2019) "Now producing impressive wines, this estate has made a firm, rich wine in this vintage. Its tannins are very present, but they have a velvet edge that is immediately attractive. Not that the wine won't age: its structure and good acidity will see to that. Drink from 2025."

James Suckling: 94 Points

(2/2019) "An explosion of all manner of black berries with discreet, toasty and smoky oak, makes this a joyful St.-Estephe. Then the great balance of ripeness, lively acidity and velvety tannins come together beautifully at the elegant finish to make this the best wine from this producer in modern times. Needs two or three years to soften."
