Product Description

4eme Cru Class‚ St Estephe

"Dense black/ruby, it displays sweet tannin, excellent purity, fresh fruit and a very primary, almost grapy style with lots of fruit. ... 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." Parker

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

At first, the Rochet vineyard was part of the vast Roussillon Valley fiefdom. Then in 1650, when Antoinette de Guillemotes marries Etienne 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, Etienne 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.
