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.
86-89 Points | International Wine Cellar , April 2012
(55% cabernet sauvignon, 39% merlot, 3.5% cabernet franc and 2.5% petit verdot): Good full red-ruby. Good lift and spice to the musky aromas of dark plum, licorice and gunflint. Juicy and fairly intense, with bitter chocolate and graphite flavors perked up by mineral energy. Finishes pure, clean and long, with lovely floral nuances.
