Possibly the most famous of the Bordeaux châteaux, thus one of the most famous wineries in the world, there are records of vineyards on this site dating to the 12th Century. most of the vineyards were created in 1680s and the wine has been referred to as a premier cru of the Médoc as far back as 1790s. Following inclusion as a First Growth in the 1855 Classification, it was in 1868 that Baron James de Rothschild purchased Château Lafite. The vineyards are at the very northern tip of the Pauillac appellation, bordering (with some actually inside) Saint-Estèphe. Planted to Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Merlot (25%), Cabernet Franc (3%) and Petit Verdot (2%) the average age of the vines used in the grand vin are 45 years old. The oldest plot, called ‘La Gravière’, was planted in 1886. Whilst a very consistent producer for decades, today Lafite’s wines are even better and worthy of its elevated first growth ‘plus’ status. Eric Kohler has taken the quality up a notch since taking over in 2016. The results in most years are simply stunning. The Lafite style is finesse and elegance and less about power. Cedar, truffle, lead pencil and spice can all be found along with cassis as the key fruit character.

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
