Chateau Lafite Rothschild 2015 Pauillac 75cl / 12.5%
A bottle of 2015 Château Lafite Rothschild from Pauillac, Bordeaux.
Château Lafite is ranked as a First Growth under the 1855 Bordeaux Classification and commonly regarded as being the most elegant and refined of them all. It is a 100 hectare estate, with plantings of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 3% Cabernet France and 2% Petit Verdot.
'The deep garnet-purple shaded 2015 Lafite Rothschild is blended of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Merlot and was matured for 20 months in new oak barrels from Tonnellerie des Domaines (their own cooperage). It is still sporting a lot of cedar at this nascent stage with a vibrant core of black raspberries, red currants and crushed plums plus touches of cigar boxes, violets and underbrush with a waft of tilled loam. Medium-bodied and elegantly styled with wonderful freshness and depth, it is compellingly earthy/minerally in the mouth with a frame of seductively silky yet very firm tannins and culminating in a very long, racy and pure finish. Boasting spectacular finesse and packed with nuances, clearly, given some of the challenges here in 2015, this is a masterpiece of diligence in the vineyards, careful selection and very clever crafting—bravo! 2024-2045. 96+/100' Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate, February 2018
