    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 2005 (12x75cl)

    Stephen Tanzer - Vinous (90-92)

    Good saturated ruby-red. Black raspberry, cassis and sexy spices on the nose. Dense, supple and sweet, with ripe dark fruit, black olive, earth and deep spice flavors. Conveys an impression of power and authority, not to mention classic St. Estephe character. The long, rising finish features substantial ripe tannins buffered by the wine's strong material. A highly successful vintage for this chateau.

    Lafon-Rochet 2014 (12x75cl)

    James Suckling (93)

    Here’s a St.-Estèphe that’s really appealing young but also has good aging potential. Great balance between crisp acidity, ripe fruit and elegant dry tannins. The finish is long and rather subtle. Hard not to drink now.

    Vinous - Antonio Galloni (92-95)

    One of the potential sleepers of the vintage, Basil Tesseron's 2015 Lafon-Rochet is a total knock-out. Explosive, deep and powerful, the 2015 possesses remarkable richness and intensity. A host of black cherry, smoke, gravel, menthol, tar and licorice notes abound. I tasted the 2015 four times over two weeks. During that time, the wine seemed to acquire more and more freshness as well as finesse. There is little question Lafon-Rochet is one of the stars of Saint-Estèphe in 2015. The blend is 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot. Jean-Claude Berrouet consults.

    Lafon-Rochet 2016 (12x75cl)

    Vinous - Neal Martin (95)

    The 2016 Lafon-Rochet has a very engaging bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit laced with pencil shavings and loamy scents. In fact, the more you nose this wine, the more its complexity becomes apparent. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine line of acidity, ripe and generous yet maintaining outstanding tension and revealing a judicious touch of peppercorns on the finish, which fans out gloriously. This is a fabulous Lafon-Rochet and certainly the best bottle of 2016 that I have encountered. Tasted blind at the Southwold tasting.

    Lafon-Rochet 2019 (6x75cl)

    Vinous - Antonio Galloni (95)

    The 2019 Lafon-Rochet is every bit as compelling today as it was from barrel. There is a feeling of elegance to the 2019 that is so striking. Sweet dark cherry, plum new leather, tobacco, licorice, spice and rose petal all grace the 2019 as it unwinds to its long finish. Lafon-Rochet is not huge nor obvious, as some Saint-Estèphes are, but it is absolutely compelling.

    Lafon-Rochet 2020 (6x75cl)

    Jeb Dunnuck (93-95+)

    I loved the 2020 Château Lafon-Rochet, a rich, powerful, concentrated Saint-Estèphe that stays beautifully balanced and elegant. Lots of pure cassis and darker currant fruits as well as tobacco, chocolate, and damp herb notes define the nose, and it's medium to full-bodied, with plenty of mid-palate depth, building tannins, and a great finish. It's going to take 7-8 years to hit the early stages of maturity, but it's a brilliant wine. The blend is 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, with an alcohol of 13.5 and a pH of 3.68. Tasted twice.
