Tasting Note:

Michel Tesseron’s care for his vines approaches organic principals and his labours over the six years since he took control of Lafon Rochet have consistently yielded one of the best value wines in the Médoc. The wine is deep garnet in colour, with a beautifully feminine nose of ripe plum and blackcurrant, with a background of fine minerally terroir; lush and seductive with the slightest sign of over extraction. Pure, clean blackberry fruit, with red fruit also, supple, long and balanced. A great success.
