Chateau Lafite Rothschild 2011

75cl / 12.5%

“The wine shows the power typical of a Lafite but within the context of the fruity 2011 vintage.

The immensely dense tannic structure gives the wine a solid feel that is lifted by so much ripe black currant and berry fruits. At the back, the wine has a more brooding, dark character that suggests great aging potential.

Drink this wine from 2019.”

About the Chateau Lafite Rothschild 2011

“Love the nose on this, with sweet tobacco, delicate currant, cedar and blackberry. Full body with integrated tannins and a juicy, fruity, subtle finish. The texture to this wine is beautiful. Better than I remember from barrel. Try in 2019.”

~James Suckling

Tasting Notes

Colour: Deep ruby/purple
Nose: Dense nose, aromas of red and black fruit, boxwood and spicy notes. Lots of crushed rock, red and black currant, forest floor and underbrush characteristics.
Palate: Moderate tannin and medium body, it is built somewhat along the lines of the 1999 and 2001. It should be a 20- to 25-year wine, but it is not at the level of the 2008, 2009 and 2010. Fresh acids give the wine a somewhat more clipped feeling than most great Lafites have exhibited. Nevertheless, there is a lot of freshness and vibrancy to this vintage.
Grape Varieties: 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot
Awards: 96pts Wine Enthusiast, 94pts James Suckling, 94pts Wine Spectator, 93pts – Wine Advocate-Parker

History of Château Lafite

The most prestigious among the First Classified Growths of 1855, Château Lafite Rothschild is the lord over his lands of gravel. Because great wines are born only in the great terroirs, Château Lafite Rothschild enjoys an exceptional location with a vineyard divided into three large areas, the hillsides surrounding the Château, the Carruades plateau in the west and a parcel in the neighbouring town of Saint-Estèphe. Château Lafite Rothschild has a total of 112 hectares of vines planted in a topsoil of sand with fine, deep gravel soils that rests on a limestone bedrock, which provides excellent drainage.

From Cardinal Richelieu to the American President Thomas Jefferson at the time, the great global personalities fell under the spell of this impressive wine with a unique soul and unparalleled refinement. With elegant tannins and a silky, velvety structure, there has been no equal over the decades to the wines of Château Lafite Rothschild!
