Château Lafon-Rochet

Château Lafon-Rochet

Château Lafon-Rochet has made great strides in the last decade in improving the style of their wine to one which strives for elegance, charm and finesse. The 4eme Cru Classe Saint-Estephe estate was first purchased by the Tesseron family in 1959 and is currently under the management of Basile Tesseron.


Owner Basile Tésseron is a monumental figure in his native region, having taken over management of Lafon-Rochet from his father in 2007. The current president of the St-Éstephe ODG since 2019, Tésseron has been building a dream team at Château Lafon-Rochet in recent years. He employs superstar consultant Eric Boissenot, who consults for First Growth Chateaux Lafite, Latour, Mouton and Margaux, and he was the first to lure ex-Pétrus winemaker Jean-Claude Berrouet over to the Left Bank.

Lafon-Rochet 1996 (12x75cl)

Wine Spectator (90)

Blackberry and licorice aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long finish. Clearly better in 1996 than in 1995.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008.

Lafon-Rochet 2016 (6x75cl)

Vinous (AG) (95)

A sleeper in this vintage, the 2016 Lafon-Rochet is positively stellar. Bright, translucent and super-expressive, the 2016 has so much to offer. Lavender, tobacco, cedar, mint and dried herbs give the 2016 striking aromatic top notes to play off the darker fruit flavors. The 2016 is pure class. Don't miss it.

Decanter (93)

This is a lovely St-Estèphe this year, firm and bright with bristling fruit right out of the gate - hugely unusual to see that this year. This is one of my favourites, and is totally charming with its cassis and damson fruit, but it's the juice and friendly tension that sets it apart. Silky and enjoyable. Buy.

Lafon-Rochet 2019 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (93-95)

A wine I don't get to taste as often as I'd like, the 2019 Château Lafon-Rochet is based on 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc from deep, gravelly soils in Saint-Estèphe. Deep purple-hued, with a great bouquet of ripe black and blue fruits intermixed with classic cedar pencil and tobacco, it's medium to full-bodied, has a balanced, elegant texture, silky tannins, and a great finish. It shows more floral and chocolaty notes with time in the glass and its purity of fruit is straight-up top notch. As with most 2019s, it's going to have plenty of upfront appeal yet should age effortlessly as well.

Lafon-Rochet 2020 (6x75cl)

Vinous (AG) (93-95)

The 2020 Lafon-Rochet is fabulous. The aromatics along are dazzling. Gracious and yet effusive, with tons of nuance, the 2020 dazzles from start to finish. Inky dark fruit, new leather, spice, lavender and menthol fill the room with soaring intensity. Silky, elegant and so pure, Lafon-Rochet is shaping up to be one of the real under the radar gems of 2020. It's a terrific effort from Basile Tesseron. Don't miss it.
