About Chateau Lafite-Rothschild
Chateau Lafite-Rothschild has been sitting at the top of Bordeaux wine lists since the 17th century. Purchased by the Rothschild family in 1868, Lafite has seen it all over the years, from epidemics of phylloxera to German occupation during World War II. Today, Lafite continues to produce some of the finest, and most expensive, wines in the world.
92(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2005
($130-$175) Bright, dark ruby-red. Subdued but pure aromas of currant, plum, minerals, graphite, and sexy, coconutty oak; showed a floral note with aeration. Extremely suave, fine-grained and concentrated, with a strong spine of acidity. Finishes firmly tannic, subtle and very long. This should develop slowly.
