Château Lafon-Rochet

This estate was purchased by the Tesseron family, who made their money in Cognac, in the 1950s and is now run by Basile Tesseron.

The 40 hectares were re-planted and decisions made to harvest later, use more Merlot fruit, and increase to 40% new oak in the 16-18 months cask ageing which have resulted in much more impressive wines. There is a new cellar too and this is one of the most innovative, go-ahead properties in Bordeaux. You can't miss the bright yellow château either, on the left hand side shortly after passing Cos d'Estournel as your head north.
