TASTING NOTES

CHATEAU LAFITE

Château Lafite Rothschild is one of the most renowned wine properties in the Médoc. The vineyards of Ch. Lafite are found at the northern tip of the Pauillac appellation, just below the boundary with St. Estephe.

The current owners, the Rothschilds of the famous banking dynasty, bought the property in 1866. It is now under the capable hands of Eric de Rothschild. With a base largely of gravel the vineyard is unsurprisingly dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (71%) with the balance comprising Merlot(25%) Cabernet Franc (3%) and Petit Verdot (1%). In style the wines of Lafite are often described as having a perfumed elegance and finesse. It represents a hedonistic experience for the consumer, and has the ability to age, in great years, for minimally 50 years and often longer.
