A Balanced and Fruity Second Wine of Saint-Est?phe

The origins of Ch?teau Lafon-Rochet date back to the seventeenth century. Located on the Saint-Est?phe appellation, Ch?teau Lafon-Rochet distinguished itself in 1855 by becoming a Grand Cru Class?. In 1960, Guy Tesseron acquired the property, then thanks to his work and passion gradually raised Ch?teau Lafon-Rochet to the top of its appellation. In 2007, Michel Tesseron's son, Basile Tesseron, took over the reins of the family estate. With its golden yellow chartreuse, Ch?teau Lafon-Rochet is today a true standard of Saint-Est?phe.

The vineyard of Ch?teau Lafon-Rochet extends over 40 hectares superbly located on the Saint-Est?phe appellation. The vines, which are on average 30 years old, are planted on two croupes with different terroirs. Gravel soils promote excellent drainage while clay helps regulate water stress.

Vinification and ageing: Harvested manually, the grapes are vinified in thermoregulated concrete and stainless steel vats. Ageing is a minimum of 12 months in barrels.

The cuv?e Les P?lerins de Lafon-Rochet is made from a blend of Merlot (57%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (43%).

The blend dominated by Merlot exudes to the nose the freshness as well as the pure and frank expression of ripe fruits.

The palate seduces with its balance, its structure, its amplitude as well as its creamy finish.
