Château Lafon-Rochet:
The origin of the “Rochet” name lies quite obviously in the word “roches”, as in the “rocks” that make up the soil of the Lafon-Rochet domain. Over the course of thousands of years, crumbling rocks from the far-off Massif Central and Pyrenee mountains were ferried by the Dordogne and Garonne rivers, eroded into pebbles and deposited in the limestone subsoil of Saint-Estèphe, creating a lands...

The origin of the “Rochet” name lies quite obviously in the word “roches”, as in the “rocks” that make up the soil of the Lafon-Rochet domain. Over the course of thousands of years, crumbling rocks from the far-off Massif Central and Pyrenee mountains were ferried by the Dordogne and Garonne rivers, eroded into pebbles and deposited in the limestone subsoil of Saint-Estèphe, creating a landscape of gentle, well-drained hills featuring a deep layer of gravel. The Lafon-Rochet domain sits on soil covered by a layer of gravel dating back to the period formerly know as the Quaternary (Günz) and features a mixture of quartz, gritstone, silex, volcanic lydianite, millstone grit, sand and clay. The diverse composition of its gravel layer combined with its excellent natural drainage system make the Lafon-Rochet domain a truly exceptional terroir. With its vast estate of 40 hectares, the Château Lafon-Rochet is one of the great ambassadors of the Saint-Estèphe appellation. Ideally situated between the Lafite-Rothschild and Cos d’Estournel properties, it can proudly boast of its prime location in one of the world’s most prestigious winegrowing neighborhoods. Read less

Very exciting aromas of crushed blackberry and lightly smoky barrels. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a medium finish. A bit tight but balanced. 10,555 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Lafon Rochet (Kosher) 750ml

A sleeper of the vintage, the dense blue/purple-colored 2003 Lafon-Rochet exhibits plenty of blackberry, cassis and graphite along with a touch of toasty new oak. The wine is more backward than expected, but it possesses full-bodied, concentrated fla... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Lafon Rochet 750ml
