An alluringly complex and refined fine Pauillac wine

The estate

Ranking as a First Growth in the 1855 Bordeaux classification, Château Lafite-Rothschild is the king and master of its gravelly land. Boasting a long winemaking tadition that began in 1620, it has asserted itself over the centuries as a true standard in the Pauillac appellation, on the left bank of the Bordeaux region. Indeed, from Cardinal Richelieu to the then President of the United States of America, Thomas Jefferson, the world’s leading figures have fallen under the spell of these fine Pauillac wines due to their unique soul and unparalleled refinement.

The vineyard

Château Lafite-Rothschild enjoys an exceptional location with a vineyard divided into three main areas. From the slopes surrounding the château, to the Carruades plateau to the west and a plot in the neighbouring Saint-Estèphe area, this illustrious Pauillac reference watches over a total of 112 hectares of vines. Resting on deep, fine gravel soils with sand on the surface, the limestone subsoil provides an excellent drainage.

The vintage

A particularly cold and wet winter preceded a spring and early summer whose heat favoured an early veraison period. Although August was cool, September was marked by a lot of sunshine and punctuated by a stormy spell, forcing the estate to bring forward the start of the harvest.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (82%)
Merlot (16%)
Cabernet Franc (2%)

Château Lafite-Rothschild 2006: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

The colour is very dark.

Discreet, the nose gives off primary aromas that become more full and dense as the wine is aerated.

The palate is seduced by its power, its structure as well as its finish that mixes elegant tannins with delicate woody notes.
