About

1855 Grand Cru Classe – 4th Growth, Saint-Estephe

The history of Chateau Lafon-Rochet goes back to the 16th century.

Domain Rochet, as it was known in the 17th century, got renamed to Lafon-Rochet following a marriage.

The chateau belonged to the Lafon family for more than 200 years.

In the 1960, the Tesseron Family acquired the chateau. Today, the third generation of the family manages the winery.

The renovations of the winery brought state-of-the-art technology.

The chateau grounds are very beautiful and the hospitality is welcoming. Do not miss visiting Chateau Lafon-Rochet on your Bordeaux wine tour.

    I salute Basile and his team, their efforts and dedication that they put into this handcrafted work of art; A living proof that there is a difference between wine and wine. While you will not find a bottle of highest possible quality to a more reasonable price, the beautiful estate itself is well worth a visit on a guided journey from vineyard to palate. +++++

    Excellent tour of the winery and very knowledgable guide and very friendly. Beautiful setting and we had a tour just with our family not tons of other people. Very good length and interesting tasting in the end. Loved this place a lot. Would recommend it highly.

    My husband and I had a wonderful private tour. Lafon-Rochet is a beautiful, modern and technologically-advanced chateau. They use cement vats that have temperature control through a water cooling system in the walls of the vats. Each vat is monitored by a computer/ mobile app. We enjoyed 3 tastings - 2000 was superb, soft and smooth. 2007 was good and so was 2016. Purchased 2014 as it was a personal special year at 42 euros so very reasonable. We also met the owner. Highly recommend!

    Thank you to Anabelle for this very interesting guided tour of the vineyard, the vat room and the cellars, with detailed explanations, answering all our questions in a lively and playful way. The owner, Mr. Michel, gave us the pleasure of sharing the tasting moment with us by embellishing the conversation with family anecdotes. The estate is magnificent, and the wines tasted delicious. We highly recommend!
