Well, well, well - Lafite Rothschild does it again. Ever since manager Charles Chevalier was transferred from his beloved Sauternes property of Rieussec (also owned by the Rothschilds) to Lafite in 1994, there has been a succession of profound wines to emerge from this noble estate. Visiting Lafite Rothschild is always a highlight of our annual Bordeaux field trip. Unlike certain other growths, Lafite Rothchild's wines always live up to its reputation (even in poor years), and it is the most consistent of first growths.

“...an extraordinary aromatic expression of liquid minerals/stones interwoven with the tell-tale graphite notes, mulberry, black currants, caramel, and tobacco. In the mouth, it is remarkably light on its feet, but somehow seems to pack intense flavors into layer upon layer of fruit and richness that cascade over the palate. A compelling wine, with extraordinary precision, great intensity, and seamlessness.” eRobertParker.com
