Saint Estephe, Bordeaux, France
The 1990, a stunning effort for this property, offers further proof of just how successful 1990 turned out to be for St.-Estephe. Very dark ruby, with a tightly knit nose of black fruits, this massively endowed wine is one of the most powerful and concentrated Lafon-Rochets I have tasted. Patience will be required with this offering. Anticipated maturity, 1998-2022.
