4e Grand Cru Classé

Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 95-97/100
The 2022 Lafon-Rochet is fabulous. Once again, Lafon-Rochet is the most
elegant wine in Saint-Estèphe. There’s a bit more richness and mid-palate
intensity than in the past, likely a combination of the year and the
approach of the new team headed by Technical Director Christophe
Congé, who was formerly at Lafite-Rothschild. The 2022 signals a new era
for the château that is likely to see a greater focus on selection and a
slightly richer style. Even so, the signatures of Lafon-Rochet are evident.
It’s an exciting time.
