Readers should keep an eye out for Lafon-Rochet, one of the emerging stars of St.-Estephe. Beginning with the 1994 vintage, the stricter selection and dedication of the Tesseron family are pushing this wine into a higher qualitative category. Moreover, prices for Lafon-Rochet remain low! This should turn out to be an outstanding example of Lafon-Rochet. The 1994 is a breakthrough vintage for this estate, and it has been followed by an even more compelling wine in 1995. The 1994 exhibits an opaque purple color, followed by a sweet, pure nose of cassis, new oak, and beef blood. Muscular and massive, with a huge body, and a boatload of tannin, this wine is crammed with extract and power. It requires 5-7 years of cellaring and will last for 20-30 years.
“Medoc means "amid the waters", a strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Gironde estuary to the east. The Medoc is a one-of-a-kind terroir that you need to understand if you want to get the most out of it, an exceptional and demanding terroir.
At Lafon-Rochet, 41 hectares of vines cover two outcrops in Saint-Estephe. On one side, gravel ensures excellent natural drainage; on the other, clay regulates and excess or lack of water, providing the vines with what they need.”
