Château Lafon Rochet 2010

Chteau Lafon Rochet 2010

Ref: A042210

4eme Cru Classé St Estèphe

"The 2010 from Lafon Rochet seemed slightly restrained and closed down on the three occasions I tasted it in Bordeaux. Dense black/ruby, it displays sweet tannin, excellent purity, fresh fruit and a very primary, almost grapy style with lots of fruit, but at the same time, a somewhat monolithic character. It should turn out fine, but it certainly needs a good 7-8 years of cellaring and should drink well for up to two decades. The property is owned by the Tesseron family and run by the newest generation, son Basile, who is converting the estate to biodynamic farming a la his uncle, Alfred Tesseron at Pontet Canet." Parker

The origins of this domaine date back to the 16th century, making it one of the oldest in the Médoc region.

At first, the “Rochet” vineyard was part of the vast Roussillon Valley fiefdom. Then in 1650, when Antoinette de Guillemotes marries Étienne Lafon, a Counsellor in the Bordeaux Parliament, she offers him, as part of her dowry, the “Rochette” land which she inherited. As such, the Lafon and Rochet names are also joined together.

Lafon-Rochet then embarked on two centuries of winemaking adventure. In the early 18th century, a period affectionately nicknamed “The Planting Frenzy”, Étienne de Lafon purchased parcel after parcel of land to increase the size of the Rochet domain.

His descendants followed his vision, continuing to acquire and regroup the parcels which now give us the domain we see today.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Azalais 2012
Vacqueyras Cuve Azalais 2012
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.


Les Terrasses Merlot/Syrah
Les Terrasses Merlot/Syrah
Deep coloured with a bouquet of ripe cherry fruit, this is a very approachable wine with the emphasis on ripeness and "crunchy" fruit with excellent balance.
