2018 Domaines Barons de Rothschild Lafite

Colour Red
Origin France, Bordeaux
District Left Bank
ABV 12.5%

This Pauillac is produced by Domaine Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) using grapes collected from younger vines at Château Duhart Milon and Chateau Lafite Rothschild. This accessible Pauillac will drink well from a young age and offers charm and character after an hour in a decanter. The 2018 vintage is without doubt a modern classic, it’s overflowing with juicy fruit and soft melted tannins.
The 2018 vintage was generous and the resulting wines are bold and juicy. DBR Lafite have produced a rich yet precise Pauillac, similar in style to 2015 but with more oomph and juiciness. Lafite rarely does exuberance, but this is almost exotic with supple tannins and plush core. After a few minutes there’s cool blackberry coulis, inky cassis, blueberry, warm slate, fresh tobacco, cedar, violets and graphite. The palate is open and expressive with layers of juicy cassis and toasty spice. After a few hours this magnum will show very well, but it’s best years are yet to come.
