The History of Château Lafon-Rochet

The Tesseron family owns and runs the prestigious Château Lafon-Rochet winery, built in the mid-17th century and located in the Saint-Estèphe appellation of the Bordeaux region. It is currently Basile Tesseron, the son of Michel Tesseron, who manages the estate. They grow 41 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. The vine density in the vineyards of the Château Lafon-Rochet winery ranges from 8,500 to 10,000 vines per hectare. To promote the winery, Château Lafon-Rochet has been the first in Bordeaux to participate in the Google Street View Program.

The Exceptional Terroir of Château Lafon-Rochet

The terroir of the winery has some hard, blue clay soils in Pomerol, at Petrus. They perform 70% of the vinification in new, concrete tanks, which are mostly used to ferment the Cabernet Sauvignon. Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc are vinified in stainless steel. Over the years, they have improved viticultural techniques and increased the use of Merlot grapes to produce wines with a purer expression and a fruitier taste. Château Lafon-Rochet has been experimenting with biodynamic farming techniques and has put a plan into place to convert all the parcels to biodynamic wines over the next few years.
