Château Lafite-Rothschild 2012

 Incl. VAT & DPA case of 6 Bottles (75cl)
In the glass, Chateau Lafite Rothschild 2012 presents a "beautiful structure that is very precise with present tannins and a ripeness that is associated with freshness and precise acidity. This is the general impression that we have when the wine in the mouth. It allows us to understand that it is truly is a great wine from a great terroir. It is truly magical to see that regardless of the reputation of the vintage - with the help of scientific developments which we enjoyed for the past few years - we get results that are extraordinary.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2012 Lafite Rothschild, representing only 38% of their total production, is a blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance mostly Merlot. It is a very stylish, elegant, yet concentrated Lafite Rothschild with an opaque ruby/purple color, soft well-integrated tannins, nice integrated oak, acidity and alcohol. Lafites's 2012 reveals good, opaque, ruby/purple color and plenty of lead pencil and blackcurrant fruit. The wine is medium-bodied and should hit its prime 2020-2035.
