About Château Lafite Rothschild 1979
Bottle (75cl)

Château Lafite Rothschild is a Premier Grand Cru Classé de Pauillac and is one of the most renowned wines in the world.

The 1979 vintage was not an easy one. Many estates have broken their teeth there, leaving wines of very average quality. But, as usual, Château Lafite Rothschild has managed to produce a high quality wine despite these difficult conditions.

The Château Lafite Rothschild 1979 shows a color still red, slightly brown on the edges.
Closed at the first nose, it opens gently in a decanter. After a few minutes of settling, the 1979 Lafite Rothschild reveals itself, intense and complex. It distils then scents of blackcurrant, plum, leather, tobacco and aromatic herbs, as well as woody notes of undergrowth.
On the palate, it is moderately acidic and well-balanced, with melted but still quite rough tannins.
