Château Lafite-Rothschild 2023 - ALLOCATED TO PRE-ORDERS

Château Lafite-Rothschild 2023 - ALLOCATED TO PRE-ORDERS

<p>91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.5% Merlot, 0.5% Petit Verdot. Graphite, pencil shavings and cool, poised blackcurrant, very classical, with a sweetly dark-fruited, gently insistent ripeness which supports the tannins beautifully. The tannins themselves are wonderfully fine, the finest I have seen this vintage. Extremely polished, but without detracting from its elegant, cassis-driven character. Effortless. The yield was 40hl/ha – around 10% lower yield than a normal vintage. 13.3% abv.</p>

"93% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot. Supple and voluminous, Lafite has an unexpected pliancy and tenderness this year, with more red berry character than usual. The juicy, delectable berry fruit is framed by fine, fruit-coated tannins. “2016 with a touch of 2019”, in the words of Saskia de Rothschild. Harvested between 7th and 29th September.   C&B Score: 17.5-18 Drinking dates: 2032-52+Case of 3 bottles: £1230 IB UK"
