On a drive though the sprawling vineyard land of the northern Medoc, Chateau Lafon-Rochet is a luminous yellow beacon on the St. Estephe horizon. Situated bordering Chateau Lafite-Rothschild and Chateau Cos D'Estournel, Lafon-Rochet can trace its glowing yellow roots back to Guy Tesseron, who purchased the 4th Growth-classified property in 1959. Under Tesseron, the grand, Chartreuse-style Chateau was built as part of a reinvestment project, which also included widespread replanting. The Tesseron family still owns Lafon-Rochet and is credited with upgrading its quality much in the same way they have propelled their other property, Chateau Pontet-Canet, to prominence.
