  • With 45 contiguous hectares, almost one gigantic parcel, overlooking Cos d'Estournel and Lafite-Rothchild, 4th growth Lafon-Rochet's roots are not only deep, they go back over 3 centuries. Owners, the Tessron family, are slowly steering this historic property towards organic and biodynamic viticulture. 2008 was the first vintage with son, Basile, in charge.
