First Grand Cru Classé in 1855

- +

2014 is a beautiful vintage in the Bordeaux vineyard, characterized by a very contrasted climate. The flowering of the vines was homogeneous thanks to a sunny spring, then the summer alternated between a beautiful July and a cooler August. The after-season in September and October was fortunately magnificent, thanks to a succession of warm and sunny days until October. The grapes thus presented a very nice oenological constitution.

Blend of the 2014 vintage: 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc

The robe is a very dark red color, with brilliant garnet tints.

The nose is intensely complex and fruity, with notes of black currant bud and black cherry, followed by dried flower, cardamom and a greedy toasty woodiness.

The attack is mellow and subtle, the wine imposes itself with a voluminous texture and density, supported by a very elegant tannic framework. It releases flavors of jammy black fruits, cocoa and peppery spices that continue to a long, generous and persistent finish.

Food and wine pairing:

Château Lafite Rothschild 2014 will be perfect with tournedos Rossini, pepper-crusted beef, roast goose, Bresse pigeon with porcini mushrooms and foie gras, or roast doe larded with a winemaker's sauce with Espelette pepper.

For a pairing with cheeses, choose uncooked pressed cheeses such as morbier with truffles, Saint-Nectaire, cantal and mature mimolette.

Finish it off with a delicious dessert such as an Opera cake, a praline dome or a vanilla and chocolate entremet.

Cellaring potential and tasting:

Château Lafite Rothschild 2014 in magnum can still wait 20 years in the cellar to reveal all its splendor, the large capacity of the bottle indeed giving it more aging potential.

It can nevertheless be fully appreciated today, by opening the bottle the day before in the tasting room so that it can acclimatize to the room temperature. Otherwise, make sure to open and if possible, decant the bottle at least 6 to 7 hours before the tasting.

The bottles should be kept in the cellar in a dark place, lying down, with an optimal hygrometric degree of 70%.

Château Lafite is first and foremost of distant origins and a reputation that also dates back to a very distant past. Château Lafite is located on the most beautiful ridges of Pauillac, a territory which the poet Ausone already spoke about around the year 325 AD in his Epitres to Théon: "Pauliacus, tanti non mihi villa forest" (Epit VIth).

The lords of Lafite had the right to justice throughout the Middle Ages and until the Revolution in this territory. Lafite wine owes its great reputation to its taste of almonds and its scent of violets and this is the main reason why this wine has always enjoyed a great reputation and that it is served at all times on royal tables, for example at Versailles.

It was in 1868 that the Château and its vineyard were bought by James de Rothschild who gave it his name from that date.

It is a Premier Grand Cru Classé according to the prestigious list of 1855.

The vineyard, whose average age is 45 years, is planted on a soil and subsoil of gravel and gravel clay.

The grape variety: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot noir, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.

The surface area of ​​the vineyard is 105 hectares for an average production of 556 barrels, ie around 500,000 bottles.

The harvest is entirely manual and the wine is aged in new barrels entirely over a period of 20 months.
