About Chateau Lafon Rochet
Chateau Lafon-Rochet has always been good. However, since being purchased in 1960 by the Tesseron family (the owners of Pontet-Canet in Pauillac), the wine from this Fourth Growth Bordeaux chateau has been excellent.

Bright red-ruby. Aromas of mocha, nuts, leather and black olive, with dark berries in the background. Juicy and spicy in the mouth, with modest fat but good energy and cut to its dark cherry, cassis and herbal flavors. Boasts good intensity but finishes a bit tight, with substantial dusty tannins.
