Chateau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe 2012
This vintage is a masterpiece of elegance and power, harmoniously blending layers of blackcurrants, graphite, and cedar. Its refined structure and remarkable depth are a testament to the legacy of the Lafite Rothschild estate.
Showing the serious side of Lafite, this is big and dark, powered by tannins as much as fruit. The wood aging is still showing, although that will integrate into the great structure that holds up the ripe black currant fruits. Totally dominated by some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon in Bordeaux, this wine has strength while also having great freshness. Drink from 2024.
