Château Lafite Rothschild 2005

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.

Château Lafite Rothschild 2005

Red wine of Pauillac (France) produced by the winery Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. His ideal pairing would be with vegetables, grilled meat, cured cheeses and game birds and ground. Window more convenient consumption will be from now until 2030. We believe that this wine should be decanted. It should be served at a temperature of between 12 ° C and 16 ° C in a glass of Bordeaux type for better tasting.

Lafite Rothschild Pauillac 2016
We drank it with appetizers. I celebrated a special occasion with Lafite Rothschild Pauillac and my couple.
Cherry colour, low layer. Smells of hazelnuts and almonds. A surprisingly fresh wine.

It was too well-bodied for our meal. Nice chat with friends.
Dark cherry colour, medium opacity. Aromas of nuts. A little bit salty but it was very good.
