Second wine of Château Lafon Rochet
The History of this ancient estate goes back to the middle of the 17th century, when, in 1650, Antoinette de Guillemotte, brought the land of 'Rochette' as her dowry to her husband, Pierre de Lafon, a Councillor in the Bordeaux Parliament who gave his name to the property. In spite of the revolution, the estate was to stay for more than two centuries in the hands of this far-sighted family who did much for the reputation of its wines.
In 1880, Madame Lafon de Camarsac died, and the Château entered into a period of some difficulty. The estate changed hands several times, and, when Guy Tesseron became the new owner in 1959, it was in serious need of restoration.
Having first put the vineyards back in to good order, Guy Tesseron decided to build an entirely new chai, and the Château, too, was pulled down, and a new house built, completely in the Chartreuse style of the 18th century.

Tasting Notes

Powerful, rich, and concentrated, this wine has the perfect balance of dark, dense fruits, a firm tannic structure and tangy acidity. Gentle spice and a slight toastiness on the finish.
