1995 CHÂTEAU LAFITE ROTHSCHILD 1995

The 1995 vintage is a superb vintage. This year was particularly sunny with a dry summer and at the beginning of September light rainfall which was advantageous for the vines. At harvest time, the berries were perfectly ripe.
Château Lafite Rothschild 1995 is a wine with particularly fine tannins, the length in mouth is excellent. This premier cru classé shows great elegance. It is a wine of great ageing potential.

Blaickish ruby with hardly any suggestion of ageing. That very refined lift of Lafite on the nose – oyster shells? Very elegant indeed – no dry tannins. Complete and with enough juice. A very fine Lafite. Lovely graphite finish – sinewy. No heaviness at all. And the tannins are SO well managed!

(2007) Intense aromas of blackberries, black licorice and currants, with mineral undertones. Full-bodied, with a solid core of tannins and a long, silky finish. Still holding back, but is concentrated and powerful. The 1996 is always talked about, but I think this is superior and will be in the future.
