The fruit of an exceptional terroirChâteau Lafite-Rothschild is a legendary wine, often considered to be the grail of Pauillac and even the very first wine! The 2011 vintage is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (80%), complemented by Merlot (20%).
It has a deep, intense purple colour. Its dense nose is marked by aromas of red and black fruits, boxwood and spicy notes. Château Lafite-Rothschild 2011 is very dense on the palate, with a relatively complex finish. The immensely dense tannic structure gives the wine a solid feel that is enhanced by so much ripe blackcurrant and berry fruit. The finish is very long and complex.
