CHATEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD 2009 - 1ER CRU CLASSE

0,75 L Red Wine / France / Bordeaux / Pauillac AOC / 13,5 % vol

"It is unquestionably another profound Lafite. The classic elegance, purity and delineated style of Lafite." Robert Parker
It is impressive and immediately announces its personality. With its deep black colour, it gives off a deep bouquet of black fruits, crème de cassis, liquorice and tobacco. On the palate, it is already very expressive with an impressive attack of tannic power and heat. The palate then reveals a savoury side with a lot of roundness on notes of ripe fruit. Exceptionally long, the elegance and complexity are already there. Everything is in place to last over time, a very long time... It is a monumental wine!

CHÂTEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD

Château Lafite Rothschild is a Premier Grand Cru according to the official Bordeaux Wine Classification of 1855. It shares this rare distinction with Château Margaux, Château Latour, Château Mouton Rothschild and Château Haut-Brion. The great wine of Château Lafite Rothschild has no longer to be presented. In 1815, Abraham Lawton already ranked it at the top: "I classified it as possessing the most elegance and delicacy and the finest sap of the three [premiers crus]", a classification confirmed in 1855. As for characterising it, beyond the vintages, let us take up the words of an enlightened wine lover: "...whatever happens, all the wines of Château Lafite smell of almonds and violets!”
