Dark currant and berries on the nose, with hints of violet. Medium- to full-bodied, with silky tannins and a medium finish. A little one-dimensional on the palate, but should develop well.

Intense dark red color. Ripe fruity fresh and especially fine nose. Delicate on entry and offering its typical magical touch the wine is refined with vibrant aromas and a normal body. Melting on the palate and finishing tasty long with refined tannins. Very elegant. Jean-Marc Quarin - www.quarin.com

This has a very intriguing nose. Already shows complex aromas of currant and crushed berries, with hints of dried flowers. Full-bodied and very chewy, with intense tannins, but polished and velvety. Long and pretty. The finish stays with you a long t... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Lafite-Rothschild 1500ml

A candidate for the -wine of the vintage,- the 2008 should have been purchased before it began to soar in value because of the significance of the number 8 in the Chinese culture (denoting good luck). Representing 40% of the production, this blend of... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Lafite-Rothschild 375ml

The 2008 Carruades de Lafite, made from yields of 46 hectoliters per hectare, is a blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, and 1% Cabernet Franc. Revealing an inky/ruby/purple color that is slightly less dense than the grand vin... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 2008 Lafite Rothschild is one of the most profound young wines I have ever tasted. From a taster's perspective, it is reminiscent of a blend of the 1996 and 2003, but when you compare those vintages analytically, that makes no sense whatsoever. R... Robert Parker.

Winemaker's Notes:

With succulent, juicy fruit and a gravely minerality throughout, Lafite's2008 Grand Vin has the beautiful elegance so typical of this grandchàteau. Its restrained style sometimes shrouds its brilliance at enprimeur tastings but the 2008 Grand Vin displays all the qualities of a winewhich will develop into a fantastic First Growth: the tannins are ripe andsilky, the cassis-laden fruit is intense and fine, and the savoury finish seemsendless. Time is required to add flesh to the bones of this Lafite but at itspeak it will be stunning.
