Chateau Lafargue's wines and vintages

Red vintages

Chateau Lafargue 2015 (red)

2015 signs a great, deep-coloured wine. The fruits are perfectly ripe but with some freshness as well that gives it elegance.
Its structure is rich and powerful while developing fineness thanks to its terroir of “Graves”.
Its length is exceptional with a beautiful tension that gives it lots of character and guarantees a long ageing potential.

To drink +/- 2015/2030 (tasted in August 2009)

This wine has a delicate ruby colour. Its nose is soft and elegant right in the beginning of the attack: flavors of cherry, plum, white pepper and turmeric.

The palate is silky and concentrated; in fact you can feel a nice sweetness backed by a fine structure of tannins that are certainly present, but already well blended in.

In the mouth the aromas of roasting dominate, in the end it is most of all the plum that prolongs the taste.

A long, silky and rich wine, very pleasant when it is young, but it does get better with time.
