Description

Details

Domaine Lafond, now run by Jean-Pierre and Pascal Lafond, is based in Tavel where it has 35 hectares of vineyards and produces one of the best Tavels on the market today. The domaine also has a 10-hectare holding in the neighbouring commune of Lirac, where it produces both red and white wines.

This estate is named after a famous French race horse of the 1960s, Rocquépine, a favourite of winemaker Pascal Lafond’s father. The current winery was constructed in the 1970s and has been considerably extended over the years to accommodate the production of the domaine’s 85 hectares.

Vineyards

The grapes are all destemmed, grape-skin maceration lasts 4 to 12 hours depending on the vintage year to extract flavours and consistency. Then low temperature fermentation. Early bottling in January to « trap » the aromas.
