Chateau Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 1er Grand Cru Classe (3 bottle OWC) 2018

As a wine of exceptional quality, the 2018 Chateau Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac, 1er Grand Cru Classe, presented in its original wooden case, is a true gem for collectors and enthusiasts alike. With its deep, dark color and a complex bouquet of blackcurrant, graphite, and cedar, this wine is a masterpiece of the Pauillac appellation. On the palate, it displays a perfect balance of fruit, tannin, and acidity, with a long, lingering finish that leaves a lasting impression. Packaged in a beautifully crafted wooden case, this wine is not only a delight to drink but also a stunning addition to any collection.

Wine Enthusiast

An immensely structured wine, this is complex, concentrated and yet so contained. The wine impresses with its balance, layers of succulent black-currant fruits and effortless style. A wine for the long term, it should not be touched before 2029. Roger Voss

Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) -

The 2018 Lafite Rothschild is blended of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.5% Merlot and 0.5% Petit Verdot and has 13.3% alcohol. Deep purple-black in color, it needs a fair bit of swirling to unlock intoxicating scents of blackcurrant cordial, baked plums and black cherry compote with an undercurrent of dark chocolate, licorice, cast-iron pan, cedar chest and fertile loam, plus a waft of pencil lead. The delicately crafted, medium-bodied palate is dripping with class, featuring layers of mineral-laced black fruits and exquisitely ripe, singularly Lafite tannins, finishing with epic length and depth. This simply stunning, delicately crafted expression of 2018 with its singularly evocative imprint of Lafite will require a good 7-8 years in bottle, then should continue to inspire awe over the following 40+ years. - Reviewed by Lisa Perrotti-Brown
