Fine, concentrated colour. Solid and dense in the mouth, presenting good structure and well-defined tannins. A long, lingering wine with notes of violets on the finish. The chateau Lafite-Rothschild 2010 is an elegant Pauillac wine with excellent balance. Cabernet Sauvignon 87 %, Merlot 13 %.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet in color, the 2010 Lafite Rothschild is a little mute on the nose at this stage, opening to reveal warm blackcurrants, baked plums and boysenberry scents with hints of chocolate mint, violets, cedar chest and pencil lead. Full-bodied, rich and densely packed with perfumed black fruit layers, it has a rock-solid backbone of fantastically ripe, grainy tannins and beautiful freshness, finishing very long and minerally. Still very youthful!
