Notes
A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, and 4% Cabernet Franc, the 2022 Lafon-Rochet has a pH of 3.77 and a TPI of 83. It has a deep garnet-purple color and after a bit of shaking it erupts with intense scents of fresh blackcurrants, black raspberries, and kirsch, followed by hints of underbrush, camphor and iron ore. The full-bodied palate is concentrated and yet possesses lovely freshness, featuring ripe, grainy tannins and loads of mineral sparks which lift the ripe black fruit to a long finish. Impressive effort for the first full vintage under the new management!

Château Lafon Rochet

Basil Tesseron’s 4th growth Lafon Rochet, which neighbours Chateau Lafite, is undertaking several bold changes. Superstar consultant Denis Dubourdieu has been drafted in to join Lucus Leclercq, the new technical director, previously at Cheval Blanc and Domaine Romanee Conti. Half of the vineyards are now being farmed bio-dynamically.
