2007 Ch. Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac

Ch. Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac
No wine in Bordeaux is more silky and gorgeously textured than Ch. Lafite. Happily, their 2007 continues the trend. A rich, fine, dark fruit compote nose leads to a wonderfully fresh, refined palate with delicate yet intense cassis, plum and cedar-box flavours caressing the tastebuds on their way to an exquisite finish. Lafite have not tried to produce a blockbuster in 2007 but have worked in perfect harmony with the vintage. Using low yields and allowing only 38% of the crop into the Grand Vin, they have wholeheartedly succeeded in producing a beautifully classic 2007 Lafite.Château Lafite Rothschild

Superb black-red colour, big, almost velvety depth with violets on the nose, very expressive fruit while also being quite restrained, the opposite of exotic, firm, even slightly old-fashioned in its purity and severity of expression, a very fine vineyard wine for mid to long term

Ch. Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac
38% of the crop went into the grand vin this year, 55% into Les Carruades. Ruby with quite a wide rim. Very light nose with real freshness. Fine, delicate, yet pretty supple. Not the race of Lafite's best vintages - a bit softer and less acidity. Drags down just a little on the end of the palate. Quite a bit of tannin. But I'd like a bit of lift and energy! There's more of that in the Duhart-Milon tasted alongside."

Ch. Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac
A candidate for the wine of the vintage, the 2007 Lafite Rothschild (84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and 1% Petit Verdot) reveals classic Lafite aromas of graphite, unsmoked cigar tobacco, black currants, cherries, and a hint of truffles. The complex aromatics are followed by a round, medium to full-bodied wine with silky tannins, an overall subtle smoky component, and a rich, round, generous, plump finish. Already evolved and delicious, it should continue to drink well for two decades.
