Château Lafite Rothschild 2009

The Pauillac combine finesse and tannic power and exceptional aging potential. Such wines can face strong taste dishes such as venison, red meat, preparations of mushrooms or foie gras.

Wine dark layer and very high intensity. Intense nose, delicate, subtle and complex. Palate very precise and clear in the beginning that then acquires breadth and volume resulting in very round sensations. Very powerful, very persistent and density, very elegant.
Pairing: Its prized flavor can not be otherwise than together with dishes of beef, venison served with elaborate sauces.

looser Land and heights. Less divided between producers. The importance of terroir. fruity wines, vigorous, structured, complex. E ', if not the first, one of the top three wines in the world has unimaginable aging limits, in great vintages can pass without problem even a century. It 'a wine for special occasions and consequently the price of the great vintages can reach very high prices. It 'a myth, a' work of art in wine that has existed for more than two centuries.

2009 - Non contractual picture. Deep bouquet of black fruit and licorice. A mouth full, round, already expressive, and that tightens expresses its power and vivacity. His youth does not hide his energy, but the elegance and complexity are already there! The beginning of the wine year was difficult to manage because of a rather hot spring but mostly wet. Great vigilance was maintained to protect the vines. The nice stable weather returned in June and has continued through the summer. Drought has even installed, interrupted in July, August and September of slightly rainy welcome episodes. The beautiful sunshine, warm days, but not scorching, and fairly cool nights enabled slow ripening pushing back the start of the harvest in late September. Exceptionally favorable weather conditions, culminating in the harvest under the sun, for a result that will stand. Field Château Lafite Rothschild: The combination of ancestral know-how and spirit of today. Owner of Château Lafite Rothschild for 5 generations, the Rothschild family is rooted in the Bordeaux vineyards in 1868 and has to date Lafite Rothschild Castles, Duhart-Milon, The Gospel and Rieussec.
In addition to wines from their prestigious vineyards, the Barons de Rothschild have developed, over the years, a range of more affordable wines for everyday: the "Reserves Barons" and named because they were created originally at the request of close friends and family. It is to perpetuate the spirit of these reserves as Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) has decided to decline in four major Bordeaux appellations: Bordeaux, White Bordeaux, Medoc and Pauillac. By creating the "Collection", DBR (Lafite) is part of the desire to offer classic Bordeaux with immediate charm.

Château Lafite Rothschild 1Er Cru Classé 2009

The main reason why the 2009 Lafite Rothschild is not the ultimate score received 100 points, but Parker 99+ is because the wine is still somewhat closed but that is not surprising because these Lafite Rothschild is a very profound Lafite and after the 1996 and 2003 the finest performance and it definitely has the longest window and drinking should definitely stay until 2020 in the basement and remains great until 2070+. It is one of the most powerful Lafites ever made with a 13. 5% alchohol rate and the final blend is made up of 82.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot 7% ​​and the rest Petit Verdot. The selection was incredible strand which has been used only 45% of the harvest. A tight, but potentially wonderful nose of graphite, black currants, licorice and honeysuckle is followed by a full-bodied wine with classic elegance, purity and defined style of Lafite. It's phenomenal concentrated with soft tannins, voluptuous, broad, succulent personality, and low acidity.

TASTING NOTES:
There is not a hard edge to be found in this inky/purple-colored wine displaying notes of charcoal, incense, black currants, and licorice. In the mouth, it represents a liqueur of black fruits offered in a remarkably full-bodied, incredibly elegant, lush style. Expansive, savory, staggeringly concentrated, and voluptuous as well as wonderfully precise with a hint of minerality, this sensational wine’s technical numbers are off the charts.

They had it in a wine bar served by the glass.
The Château Lafite Rothschild is a true cherry colour. A red that smells of cherry and licorice. Correct acidity.
