Pauillac, 1er Cru Classé, Bordeaux, France
Château Lafite Rothschild is one of the original “First Growth” vineyards of Bordeaux and one of the world's most prestigious wines.
Deep garnet red in colour and incredibly fragrant, fresh, and classy on the nose. On the palate it is surprisingly rich with notes of black fruits, mineral, and hints of tobacco. Very good grip and a very complete and harmonious wine. A medium-full bodied wine with delicate structure, it is best drunk now.
This wine is at full maturity but is capable of holding for another decade. It reveals the classic Lafite bouquet of red and black fruits, cedar, fruitcake, and tobacco-like aromas. In the mouth it displays a delicacy of fruity sweetness, paired with subtle, well-defined flavours of tobacco, cigar box, cedar, and fruitcake.
