CHATEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD 2005 - 1ER CRU CLASSE

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

"...I have never tasted such a perfect wine, even as a seasoned taster." *** Coup de coeur Guide Hachette
From the first glance, one can tell that Charles Chevallier and Éric de Rothschild's team were able to take full advantage of the favourable conditions of the summer - which amply made up for a more than mitigated spring. The colour is indeed dark, almost black, with purple reflections that give the impression that it is in motion. One is gently enveloped by the subtle fragrances of a bouquet bursting with ripe black fruits, violets and the cocoa notes from the long ageing in new barrels. The palate leaves a feeling of total fullness, as the wine is powerful, voluminous, round, harmonious and full. Obviously, the tannins are present and strong; but they maintain a smooth texture, with a fine liveliness in the background, which underlines the long, tasty and spicy finish, where fruit is once again found. An ensemble of great purity, exceptional aromatic persistence and elegance! R.Parker: 96+/100

LAFITE ROTHSCHILD (Château)

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!”
