Nice secondary wine from a great producer. Did not expect too much and was pleased with the wine. though a bit light on complexity , there were nice aromas and mouth feel. Not a lingering finish. With the price under $12 it was a bargain, usually a good $5+ more.

A Stellar Value Bordeaux from the Outstanding 2009 vintage! Winemaker Notes - Intense and aromatic nose, with powerful aromas of very ripe fruits (raspberry, blackcurrant) blended with notes of liquorice. On the palate, the wine is both full-bodied and powerful, with ripe and silky tannins.

82.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 0.5% Petit Verdot. This massive wine is very deep purple in color and impressively concentrated. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, dark chocolate, coffee, and cherry. This is a very complete wine from start to f... John Sweeney. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Lafite-Rothschild 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 vintage met the five conditions necessary for a great year in Bordeaux: homogeneous, early flowering and setting (early June) with hot, dry, sunny weather; an equally early start to the ripening process (“véraison”), beginning in late July, complete ripeness due a warm, dry August and September, and finally dream harvests starting late in September, in perfect weather conditions! The wines are of excellent quality, very pleasant on the nose and in the mouth, with ripe, silky tannins, good aromatic expression and a freshness in the finish that perfectly balances the sometimes high levels of alcohol. Colour: good intense purple. Nose: expressive and voluptuous, mingling aromas of dark berries (blackberries, blackcurrants), dried fruit (figs, almonds), spices and liquorice. Palate: full-bodied and flavourful, with silky, well blended tannins, powerful aromas and a fresh, spicy finish. A rich, full and nice wine.
