A wine where the name precedes it – One of the very best wines that money can buy. With an average annual production of around 16,000 cases, the demand for Château Lafite Rothschild of all vintages is extremely high. The 2014 is very well reviewed amongst critics and has been popular amongst investors and wine enthusiasts alike. Made up of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc.
The aromas of stones, oyster shell, blackcurrants and mushrooms are very intense. Full-bodied, dense and powerful with lots of blackberries. Great finish. Super energy and depth. Try in 2022. Fascinating.
