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.
86-88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 1998
Good full red. Fruit-driven aromas are complicated by floral and licorice nuances. Fairly sweet and ripe in the middle palate, with tobacco, spice and licorice flavors of noteworthy purity. Very Pauillac in its dry, penetrating flavor, but I found this sweeter than the Duhart-Milon tasted alongside it.
