Chateau Lafite

Chateau Lafite Rothschild makes some of the best wine in Bordeaux. No less impressive is the chateau's charming owner, Baron Eric de Rothschild, who sounds a bit like Cupid as he describes his wine.

    [SOLD-OUT] Chateau Lafite Rothschild 2003

    Region: France- Bordeaux Left Bank

    Robert Parker 100 points!"A modern day version of the 1959 Lafite, the 2003 Lafite Rothschild was bottled in mid-May, 2005 after achieving 12.9% natural alcohol – hardly an astonishing figure given the vintage’s weather conditions. A combination of 86%...

    [SOLD-OUT] Chateau Lafite Rothschild Carruades de Lafite 2005

    Region: France- Bordeaux Left Bank

    "A classic example of a second wine, the 2005 Carruades de Lafite reveals a dark ruby hue with some pink showing at the rim. The moderately intense nose of graphite, forest floor, and sweet black currant fruit is followed by a medium-bodied, elegant wine...

    [SOLD-OUT] Chateau Lafite Rothschild 2002

    Region: France- Bordeaux Left Bank

    Robert Parker 94 points!A brilliant offering and a candidate for wine of the vintage, this is classic Lafite that reminded me somewhat of the 1976, although the vintage conditions were completely different. This is a medium-weight, quintessentially...

    Region: France- Bordeaux Left Bank

    Robert Parker 94 points!The 2001 Lafite Rothschild’s deep, saturated plum/purple color is accompanied by lead pencil liqueur-like notes intermixed with sweet red and black currants, plums, and cedar. This blend of 86.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13.5%...

    Region: France- Bordeaux Left Bank

    Robert Parker 91-93 points!“A spectacular value as well as a sleeper of the vintage is the 135,000-bottle cuvee of 2003 Carruades de Lafite (50% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 2% Cabernet Franc). This amazing effort rivals such superb second wines...

    Robert Parker 100 points!“Well, well, well - Lafite Rothschild does it again. Ever since manager Charles Chevalier was transferred from his beloved Sauternes property of Rieussec (also owned by the Rothschilds) to Lafite in 1994, there has been a...

    [SOLD-OUT] Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1996***

    Region: France- Bordeaux Left Bank

    "Tasted three times since bottling, the 1996 Lafite-Rothschild is unquestionably this renowned estate's greatest wine. As I indicated last year, only 38% of the crop was deemed grand enough to be put into the final blend, which is atypically high in...

    Robert Parker 95 points!"The 1995 Lafite-Rothschild, a more typical blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot, and 8% Cabernet Franc, harvested between September 18 and October 1, looks to be a great Lafite in the making. Only a minuscule 30% of the...

    Robert Parker 96 points!Interestingly, a bottle of 1990 Lafite Rothschild I pulled from my cellar for a video blog on my web site was still buttoned down, tight, and even with extended decanting was not showing as much as I would have hoped. However, a...

    [SOLD-OUT] Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1988

    Region: France- Bordeaux Left Bank

    Robert Parker 94 points!"Broodingly backward and in need of considerable bottle age, the 1988 is a classic expression of Lafite. This deeply-colored wine exhibits the tell-tale Lafite bouquet of cedar, subtle herbs, dried pit fruits, minerals, and cassis...

    [SOLD-OUT] Chateau Lafite Rothschild 1970

    Region: France- Bordeaux Left Bank

    Outstanding quality. The color seems light for a wine that tastes this young and tannic, but the mint and cherry flavors seem intense enough to last until the tannins soften. Wine Spectator Issue: Nov 30, 1991
