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.

90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2014
Good full medium ruby. Vibrant blackcurrant, cherry pit, botanical herbs and violet on the nose, lifted by subtle hints of juniper and minerals. Silky, suave and pure, offering very good intensity to the fruit-driven flavors of dark cherry and blackberry. Nicely integrated acidity gives this wine a light touch. Finishes with fine tannins and excellent lift and verve.
