Château Lafite Rothschild
Traditional, elegant, and legendary – are just a few words that can describe the world’s most famous Bordeaux estate, Château Lafite Rothschild. Owned by Domaines Barons de Rothschild since the 1700s, the First Growth estate has remained the “leader among fine wines,” producing top-quality wines for decades. As one of the largest producers in Pauillac, the estate owns over 100-hectares of vineyards planted to 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and a mere 1% Petit Verdot. Two-thirds of the vineyards form a single plot around the château, while the third parcel intertwines with those of Duhart-Milon. The renowned Médoc winery produces a fragrant and soulful Grand Vin, Château Lafite Rothschild that represents the essential harmony found between man and nature. In the same spirit of distinction, Les Carruades de Lafite Rothschild is produced with a higher content of Merlot, this exceptional wine is much more impressive than an average second label. Both wines benefit from 15 to 20 years of cellaring, to achieve the ultimate unity found between the powerful tannins and the aromas of cedar and cassis fruit.
