Chateau Lafite-Rothschild 2009

 A case of 6 Bottles (750ML)

The 2009 Lafite-Rothschild is a serious contender among the greatest Medoc region releases. The wine’s deep, almost-ink colour echoes the sunny vintage. The nose exudes fresh and tingling sub-notes of blueberry, cassis, mashed strawberries, along with a hint of anise. The attack is forward, precise, long, and commanding. The rich, creamy, and generously meaty mid-palate reveals clear-cut tannins commonly found in superior wines. The back of the palate offers an increase in power along with remarkably fine grains, while the rich finish fills the mouth with dark fruits and emotions. The youth of this wine flawlessly conveys the vintage solar energy. Lafite-Rothschild know-how elegantly combined nearly-perfect climate conditions and powerful soils to produce a sensuous Cabernet Sauvignon with undeniable cellar potential.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The deep garnet colored 2009 Lafite Rothschild bursts from the glass with red and black currant preserves, warm plums, mulberries and kirsch scents plus suggestions of sweaty leather, cigar box and menthol. Medium-bodied, elegant and firmly structured, it has wonderful freshness and a long earthy/meaty finish.
