90,5 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 9 % Merlot, 0,5 % Petit Verdot. Extrem dunkles Violett-Granat mit schwarzen Reflexen. Dichtes, komplexes Bouquet, viel Edelholzoten, Mahagoni, Teakholz, Trüffel, Korinthen, Rauch, wirkt tiefgründig wie ein Latour und ist bereits in seiner Jugendphase eher auf der Terroirseite von den Grundaromen her, dahinter diese grossartige, diesmal sehr schwer wirkende, typische Lafitesüsse zeigend. Im Gaumen grossartig, viel Tanninreichtum und diese Gerbstoffe sind voller Finessen und zeigen sich sehr vielschichtig, alle Fruchtkomponenten liegen im blau- bis schwarzbeerigen Bereich, tolle Länge. Ein klassischer Lafite mit einer bestechenden Geradlinigkeit. Stil 1985-plus-plus!
René Gabriel
The 2004 Lafite-Rothschild appears to be another late-bloomer in the sense that this 12-year-old bottle is the best I have tasted, implying an upward swing in quality. It has a wondrous bouquet, very sensual and pure with blackberry, graphite and cedar - all the hallmarks of Pauillac, delivered with great panache. It is more opulent than I recall. The palate is medium-bodied with silky tannins, pitch-perfect acidity and a beautiful structure. There is a regal sense to this Lafite, understated compared to the other First Growths and yet the persistence on the finish deserves a round of applause, especially in the context of the vintage. This is superb and could possibly turn out to be the pick of the Firsts. Tasted September 2016. othschilds go, this is somewhat of a sleeper vintage.
Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Intense aromas of currant, coffee, toasty oak and sweet tobacco follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins, great mouthfeel and a long finish. A refined Lafite. Best after 2012. 22,080 cases made. JS

Château Lafite Rothschild

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. ...
Pauillac

Pauillac

Whereas Margaux might be considered the Queen of the Médoc, Pauillac would no doubt be its king. Located south of St. Estèphe and north of St. Julien, Pauillac produces wines that are powerful, bold and capable of ageing many years depending on the vintage and Château. Its 1200 hectares of vines are planted on well-draining gravelly soil, close to Gironde estuary. It is this soil which creates such powerful wines. It is home to an incredible three of the five First Growths – Châteaux Lafite-Rothschild, Latour and Mouton-Rothschild – as well as other notable estates such as Châteaux Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande, Pichon-Longueville Baron, Pontet Canet and Lynch Bages. People often think that notes of pencil lead and mint are typical indicators of a wine produced on Pauillac soil. ...
