Description

This wine reveals a constant, regardless of the color shades due to different vintages , the dress is clear , crystalline , bright and well- sustained intensity , visual inspection is very important because it often reveals the civil shine of a wine.

Rich, complex, it offers a range of floral aromas (violet in a young wine , peony after a few years ) , dried fruits ( prunes ) with delicate shades of undergrowth , toast and hints of vanilla .

End , flexible, net attack , Château Lafon does not mark its elegance under the misleading framing of a wooded end too strong, preferring to assert its "personnalité médoquine" finely tannic and elegant, lingering finish that confirms pleasantly.

Their noble tannin providing great aging potential. This Cru Bourgeois, colorful, fleshy and remarkable bouquet , saw its qualities repeatedly distinguished in exhibitions and competitions , both in France and abroad. - Winemaker's Notes
