WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“The medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Lafon-Rochet is reduced on the nose to begin, with tar and earth aromas over black fruits and herbs. The medium-bodied palate is vibrant and refreshing with firm, grainy tannins.” Lisa Perrotti, The Wine Advocate
After acquiring the estate, Guy Tesseron decided that the existing cellar was unworthy of such a fine wine, and had it razed. He built an entirely new one and, in a highly unusual move, built a new chateau as well, in the style of the 17th century chartreuse manor house. Thanks to the great care and attention lavished on Lafon Rochet, it has become one of the standard bearers of the great wines of Saint Estephe in France and around the world.
