    “Château Lafon-Rochet is one of the oldest estates in Saint-Estèphe, with origins dating back to the 16th century.
    Initially known as “Domaine de Rochet”, it was renamed “Château Lafon-Rochet” in 1650 following the marriage of its owner, Antoinette de Guillemotes, to Étienne de Lafon.
    Château Lafon-Rochet saw two centuries of winegrowing during which the vineyard grew and improved dramatically, culminating in its awarding of the title of Quatrième Grand Cru Classé at the Official Classification of 1855.

    At Château Lafon-Rochet, every goal, every action, is aimed at preserving what is most precious to us: the complex and unique terroir on which our vines grow.

    It is a daily duty that we perform with passion.”

    In The Vineyard
    "The diversity of Château Lafon-Rochet’s soils, comprising a composition of gravel (providing excellent natural drainage) and blue clay deposits, creates a strikingly unique terroir that our team has worked tirelessly to understand in order to bring out its fullest potential. We believe that a great terroir is required to make a great wine – a philosophy that spurs our commitment to preserving its richness."
    This merlot based blend, is showing some freshness as well smoothness with a straight and pure taste of ripe fruits. Its balance and structure built an intense wine with density. The final is quite suave also.
