Chateau Lafon-Rochet


Chateau Lafon-Rochet
Recent vintages here at this classed growth St Estephe have been amongst the best ever with the latest generation of the family - Basile Tesseron - now in charge of the property.

This a 4th growth Cru Classé situated in St-Estèphe that is producing some of the greatest wines in its history

The new consultant is the legendary Jean-Claude Berrouet of Chateau Petrus - his first job on the left bank.

The vineyard covers 45 hectares in one piece and is ideally located between the Castles Lafite-Rothschild and Cos d’Estournel. The Lafon-Rochet soil is covered with ancient Quaternary gravel on a great depth and clays on deep gravel. There, the Château Lafon Rochet team works hard to ensure the highest quality wine. Thus planted varieties are adapted with rootstocks and soil. Cabernet Sauvignon was planted on the lean gravel (55%) Merlot on the limestone bed (40%), the vineyard is also made up of Cabernet Franc at 5%. Cabernet Sauvignon is more present in the first wine and can represent up to 75%. Yields, maturity and care are obviously under control here. Everything is done manually just like the harvest. Priority at Château Lafon Rochet is given to work in the vineyard.
