 Château Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 2016

The most famous wine in the world. Chateau Lafite is unmistakable and at its best is peerless throughout Bordeaux. Typically impenetrable on the nose - just a hint of eastern mystery, spice, perfume, musk. Soft, plush, dense, but so effortless. Sweet, dense, pure fruit, such concentration and tension - incredible energy. Perfect tannins. Such length.

The 2016 Lafite Rothschild is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot, with 15% of the press wine contributing to the blend this year. Deep purple-black in color, it slowly reveals the most gorgeous perfume of kirsch, lilacs, black raspberries and warm blackcurrants with underlying nuances of cigar box, rose hip tea, cloves, licorice and pencil lead plus a waft of garrigue. Medium-bodied and built like a brick house with a firm yet beautifully ripe, finely pixelated tannic backbone and seamless freshness supporting the amazing intensity of black fruits and floral layers, it finishes very long and provocatively perfumed.
