This has a lifted, complex more extrovert nose of blackberry, cranberry, green pepper and freshly tilled earth. Full-bodied, sinewy and masculine but this has great concentration with good acidity but ferociously backward and tannic especially on the clipped finish Rating: 88-88 Neal Martin, (Mar 2008)

Performing much better than it did from barrel, Lafon-Rochet's 2001 exhibits a dark ruby/purple color along with complex aromas of underbrush, melted licorice, black fruits, and tree bark. Smooth, polished tannins are found in this medium to full-bodied, monolithic but attractive, well-endowed St.-Estephe. It is revealing more aromatic development and depth than I originally suspected. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2013. Rating: 88-88 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, (Dec 2006)
