Marks and reviews
A first among the 1855 classified growths of Bordeaux, Château Lafite-Rothschild is a lord upon gravel soils. Bearer of a wine-growing tradition that began in 1620, it has established itself over the centuries as a true standard of the Pauillac appellation on the left bank of the Bordeaux region. Indeed, from Cardinal Richelieu to the then-President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson, the world's greatest figures have fallen under the spell of these great wines which possess a unique soul and unparalleled sophistication.
Château Lafite-Rothschild, an emblematic Pauillac wine, enjoys an exceptional location, with a vineyard divided into three large areas. From the hills surrounding the Château to the Carruades plateau to the west and a plot in the neighbouring town of Saint-Estèphe, Château Lafite-Rothschild watches over a total of 112 hectares of vines planted on fine and deep gravel soil with sandy surfaces, as well as a limestone subsoil which allows for excellent drainage.
