Description

The vivacity and smoothness of a Saint-Estèphe wine

The estate

The origins of Château Lafon-Rochet date back to the 17th century. Located in the Saint-Estèphe appellation, Château Lafon-Rochet made its mark in 1855 when it was awarded the title of Grand Cru Classé. In 1960, Guy Tesseron acquired the property, and thanks to his hard work and passion, gradually raised Château Lafon-Rochet to the top of its appellation. Basile Tesseron, Michel Tesseron's son, took over the reins of the family estate from 2007 until September 2021, when businessman and founder of the Foncia Group, Jacky Lorenzetti, acquired the estate. Jacky Lorenzetti owns several estates on Bordeaux’s Left Bank, including Château Lilian-Ladouys (Saint-Estèphe) and Château Pédesclaux (Pauillac), and is also co-owner of Château d'Issan (Margaux).

The vineyard

Château Lafon-Rochet, with its golden-yellow charter house, is now a veritable standard-bearer among the great wines of Saint-Estèphe. The vineyard stretches across 40 hectares, superbly situated in the Saint-Estèphe appellation. The vines are an average of 38 years old and are planted on two hilltops with different terroirs. The gravelly soils provide excellent drainage, while the clay helps to regulate water stress.

The vintage

A mild, dry winter advanced early budburst, preceding an early spring when frost had little impact on the vineyards. Subsequently, the weather was mild and wet, with no disease pressure. Flowering was rapid and uniform. The vines withstood a particularly hot, dry summer thanks to sufficient water reserves.

Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), Merlot (31%), Cabernet Franc (4%).
