Château Lafite Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 1959

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep colour. An intense, delicate, subtle and complex nose. Very neat and regular on the palate upon attack leading to volume and a nicely round structure. Highly powerful, great length, dense and purely elegan

  Chateau Lafite Rothschild grew from a 180 acre winery to a massive company spanning multiple countries and producing 35,000 cases of wine annually. When Baron James de Rothschild purchased Chateau Lafite on August 8th, 1868, he was purchasing land that was already full of history. According to the 1855 classification, Chateau Lafite was ranked among the first among the First Growths, meaning that it made the best, most expensive wine at the time. Though James de Rothschild didn’t live long enough to see his winery prosper, since he died just three months after founding the chateau, his offspring have preserved the chateau’s high standing for generations. The winery’s first major purchase took place in 1962, when they bought the dying Chateau Duhart-Milton. By that time, the once-thriving vineyard had only 42 acres to its name, but Chateau Lafite Rothschild breathed new life into the property, upgrading the equipment and replanting much of the vines. 1984 marked the start of a long chain of purchases, with Chateau Rieussec in 1984, Vina Los Vascos, in Chile, in 1988, and Chateau l’Evangile in 1990. By 1999, they began restoring the Aussieres Estate, a massive 1,500 acre plot, and in 2008 they announced plans to create a winery in Penglai, China. After all this, Baron Eric de Rothschild, the current owner of the estate, continues to look forward toward the future, with new markets, like China, just over the horizon. Read less

(Magnum) This is unquestionably the greatest Lafite-Rothschild that has approached full maturity. It remains to be seen whether vintages such as 1982, 1986, and 1990 will reach a similar hei...

Full medium red with an amber edge. Ineffable aromas of red plum, raw currant, cedar and menthol. Offers an extraordinary combination of silky texture and brilliant acidity and snap. A wine of great extract and penetrating sweetness. Finishes with bi... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1959 Lafite-Rothschild 750ml
