1er Grand Cru Classé of Pauillac, Château Lafite-Rothschild is often considered the most popular of the 5 premier grands crus.
18 months of aging in new oak barrels.
About the 2014 vintage: For some strange reason, the 2014 vintage appears in the common imagination as "average". But this is not the case with Médoc! A magnificent Indian summer and very late harvests made it possible to harvest sublime Cabernet Sauvignon and that's good, this Lafite is composed of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines of this vintage promise great aging potential.
Tasting advice: Les Lafites almost always ask to be opened at least 12 hours before tasting. This vintage is no exception. You can also place it in a carafe at least 4 hours before tasting.
