Estate Notes

Château Lafite Rothschild's 1995 was highly rated by the Wine Spectator.

Visiting Lafite Rothschild is always a highlight of our Bordeaux field trips. Unlike certain other growths, Lafite Rothchild's wines always live up to its reputation (even in tricky years), and it is the most consistent of first growths.

Lafite Rothschild is under the guidance of Baron Eric Rothschild and the down-to-earth winemaker Charles Chevalier who has has positioned Lafite Rothschild at the forefront of the Bordeaux wines. There is now little to no application of chemical fertilisers and very sparse use of organic fertiliser.

"A very deep garnet core. The nose is still very masculine: pencil lead, blackberry, black cherry and a touch of smoke. Much more typicity than the 2000. The palate has good structure, excellent acidity. Very minerally, liquorice and burnt toast. Very fine definition and good weight. Superb balance and poise. This is an archetypal Lafite this is just getting into its stride. Fresh, crisp finish with a touch of green pepper from the Cabernet Franc."
