Set in the appellation of St-Estèphe sits Château Lafon-Rochet. The property fell into ruin after Madame Lafon de Camarsac died in 1880. It was only in 1959 when the Tesseron family (who also own Château Pontet-Canet) bought the Château that a new lease of life was given to the estate. The vineyards and buildings were in such a poor state, that everything had to be renovated, including the Château making it the only 1855 Classified Growth to have a modern, 20th Century Château. The vineyard of Lafon Rochet is planted to 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc, that average 35 years of age. The Chateau produces a second wine called Les Pelerins de Lafon-Rochet.
