"a firecracker of a Lafite"

Château Lafite Rothschild is een van de meest prestigieuze wijnhuizen ter wereld. Het wijngoed ligt in de Franse wijnstreek Bordeaux, in het dorp Pauillac. De wijnen van Lafite Rothschild worden al eeuwenlang geprezen om hun kwaliteit en elegantie.

De geschiedenis van Château Lafite Rothschild gaat terug tot de 14e eeuw. In 1675 werd het wijngoed eigendom van de familie Lafite. In de 18e eeuw werd Lafite Rothschild een van de leidende wijnhuizen in Bordeaux. In 1855 werd het wijngoed bekroond met de hoogste classificatie, Premier Cru Classé.
De wijnen van Château Lafite Rothschild worden gemaakt van een blend van druivensoorten. Cabernet Sauvignon is de belangrijkste druif, met een aandeel van 96% in de 2021 vintage en 3% Merlot en 1% Petit Verdot.

De wijnen van Lafite Rothschild staan hoog aangeschreven om hun elegantie, finesse en vermogen om gracieus oud te worden. De wijnen van Château Lafite Rothschild worden gekenmerkt door hun elegante en verfijnde stijl. Ze hebben een intense kleur, een complex bouquet met tonen van rood fruit, bloemen en specerijen, en een lange, zachte afdronk.

Decanter: "Graphite, black chocolate, black pepper and blackcurrant aromas but also with floral edges - so intense! Supple and racy on the palate, this is a firecracker of a Lafite, so much energy and acidity that you get this rush of red and black fruits then the stoney minerality and then the spice."

James Suckling: " Harmonious. Perfumed violets, roses and subtle licorice. All in balance here, with precise layers of black fruit, minerals and pencil lead. Rather seamless. Firm, yet fine and sleek to the end. Very classy. "

Surely a contender for wine of the vintage, certainly on the Left Bank. Vibrant and explosive, what a wine in 2021. Graphite, black chocolate, black pepper and blackcurrant aromas but also with floral edges - so intense! Supple and racy on the palate, this is a firecracker of a Lafite, so much energy and acidity that you get this rush of red and black fruits then the stoney minerality and then the spice. It's sharp and racy with the length that goes on and on. You get it all here but so well delivered, real refinement and elegance in terms of fruit precision and clarity but it's just so energetic and bright. This puts you squarely in Bordeaux with the lively and balanced freshness with these gorgeous powerful and structured Cabernet aspects telling you it's from Pauillac, ending with liquorice, stone, graphite and toasted spice from the one block of old-vine Petit Verdot that went into the blend this year. Vibrant and explosive - an absolute thoroughbred - albeit a young one! Made with 96% Cabernet as opposed to a usual amount between 80-85%. A yield of 33hl/ha. The first year of full organic farming also in 2021.

A brilliant wine that shares some similarities with the formidable 1996, the 2021 Lafite Rothschild wafts from the glass with inviting aromas of dark berries, cigar box, loamy soil, black truffle and violets. Medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, it's rich and concentrated, with beautifully powdery tannins, lively acids and a long, saline finish. Of course, this isn't as dramatic as the 2020 or 2019 out of the gates, but the 2021 is a brilliant success in its own right. What's more, its structure and balance mean that it is likely to prove almost immortal. It's a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot, which is one of the all-time highest percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon chez Lafite.

Polished and refined with a firm, fine and linear tannin structure. Harmonious. Perfumed violets, roses and subtle licorice. All in balance here, with precise layers of black fruit, minerals and pencil lead. Rather seamless. Firm, yet fine and sleek to the end. Very classy. Fine-velvet texture. 96% cabernet sauvignon, 3% merlot and 1% petit verdot.

Flowers, blackberries, charcoal, cigar box, black currants, spice, cedar, graphite and tobacco come through on the nose with a bit of coaxing. On the palate, the wine offers a pure expression of red fruits, black cherries, spice and a touch of orange rind, along with boysenberry, licorice and red plums on the backend. This is an elegant, regal, classic style of Lafite Rothschild that will age and evolve quite well. The wine is complete from start to finish and was produced from blending 96% Cabernet Sauvignon. 3% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot. 12.6% ABV, 3.9 pH. Drink from 2032-2060. 96-98
