Château Lafite Rothschild

Château Lafite Rothschild is considered the most feminine and seductive of the first growths and under the direction of Baron Eric de Rothschild and management of Charles Cuvelier it has become the more consistent of Bordeaux's first growths.

Lafite earned its reputation in the late 17th century when Jacques de Segur planted on a commercial scale. Within a century, Lafite had an international following, including Thomas Jefferson whilst serving as Ambassador at the Versailles Court. Baron James de Rothschild bought Lafite in 1868 and, with the exception of WWII, it has been under the control of the Rothschild family since.

The château is built upon the fine gravel soils and sand of the Haut-Médoc, comprising three major vineyard sites: the hillsides around the château, those adjacent to the Carruades plateau and neighbouring Saint-Estèphe.
