Château Lafite-Rothschild 2006

SKU:1033/06 Bordeaux - Pauillac - Red - 12.5° - More Info
  • Parker/WA : 95
  • J. Robinson : 17,5

The 2006 Lafite-Rothschild displays a beautiful dark colour. The discreet nose opens up to primary notes, which is expected from these grape varieties. Fragrances bode well, with hints of fresh wild fruits -especially dark fruits. To the nose, the finish is full and thick. To the palate, this Pauillac offers power with a forward and clear-cut attack -typical of this vintage- giving way to well-shaped tannins from ripe grapes. The heavy 2006 Lafite-Rothschild proves to be balanced, relatively long and delicious before the finish. This harmonious combination will no doubt please Lafite enthusiasts who particularly like well-constructed wines.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London and then blind at Farr Vintners tasting. The 2006 Château Lafite-Rothschild offers impressive fruit intensity on the nose, although it does not have the precision of the 2006 Mouton-Rothschild. Red berry fruits intermingle with rose petals and sous-bois scents - very typical Lafite bouquet where less can be more. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and a keen line of acidity. It is certainly very well balanced with graphite-tinged black fruit, but whereas Mouton-Rothschild possesses that peacock's tail, Lafite remains linear. Nevertheless, the sophistication really comes through here. It is a Lafite-Rothschild that may spring a few surprises down the line, one of those wines that keeps drawing you back. Understated class. Tasted April 2016.
