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.
