Classified as a fourth growth in 1855, Lafon Rochet consists of a 100 acre vineyard planted to 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc in Bordeaux's northern area of Saint Estephe. Superbly located adjacent to both Lafite Rothschild and Cos d'Estournel, the well-priced Lafon Rochet is producing wines of significant character and aging capability.

Wine AdvocateDeep garnet in color, the 2010 Lafon-Rochet comes bounding out of the glass with sit-up-and-beg notes of crème de cassis, blackberry pie and blueberry preserves followed by suggestions of Chinese five spice, potpourri and tilled soil. Full-bodied and concentrated, with loads of black and blue fruit layers, it has a rock-solid backbone of grainy tannins and compelling freshness, finishing long and fragrant.

Wine EnthusiastWith the release of this hugely tannic wine, this serious chateau-under the direction of the Tesseron family, which also owns Château Pontet-Canet-continues its recent upward progress. The structure currently hides opulent fruit that holds great promise for the future. With both power and richness, there's a long life ahead.

Wine SpectatorFeatures a dark currant and blackberry coulis core, surrounded by charcoal, singed savory and light coffee notes. The solid, firm, taut finish should let this linger in the cellar for a decade. Best from 2014 through 2024.
