K&L Notes

Château Lafite Rothschild is one of the five First Growth Bordeaux, and one of the most famous and collected wines in the world . The vineyard covers 112 hectares and is well-drained and well-exposed, with soil made up of fine deep gravel, mixed with aeolian sand on a subsoil of tertiary limestone. The Estate dates back to at least the 13th century and has had an amazing and prestigious history to look back upon. 97 Points from Neal Martin, Wine Advocate: "A deep, limpid garnet core with ruby rim. The nose is quintessential Lafite with cedar, blackberry, a hint of damp moss and black tea. Very good delineation with a certain languid nature. The palate is medium-bodied, very good acidity and balance, more cohesion than the Chateau Margaux with a certain sensuality that Lafite can develop (but Latour rarely does.) Blackberry, pencil lead, just a hint of tar and cooked meats coming towards the finish, very good length with grippy tannins towards the finish. Excellent. Tasted March 2008."
