Château Lafon Rochet is owned by Guy Tesseron, brother of Alfred Tesseron (Ch. Pontet Canet). It is Guy's son, Basile, who is now increasingly involved in vinification. The vineyard is magnificently situated between Cos d'Estournel and Lafite Rothschild. The wine from Lafon Rochet is a very classic Bordeaux and that means that it certainly needs some time in the bottle to reach full maturity. The Lafon-Rochet is a blend of Cabernet Sauvigon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, Lafon-Rochet delivers commanding scents of baked blackberries, warm cassis and black cherry compote with suggestions of charcoal, tar and tobacco plus a hint of mushrooms. The medium to full-bodied palate is loaded with black fruit jam and earthy notes, supported by firm, chewy tannins. This beautiful Lafon-Rochet still needs a few years in the bottle and will certainly decant it in its younger years.

The 2020 vintage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon: 61%, Merlot: 33%, Cabernet Franc: 3% and Petit Verdot: 3%
