  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

Revealing more grip and tannin since bottling the 1995 Gruaud-Larose exhibits a dark ruby color and a nose of sweet black cherries licorice earth and spice. Rich with medium to full body high tannin and subtle oak in the background the 1995 is nearly as structured and tannic as the 1996. The two vintages are more similar than dissimilar. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Intense aromas of crushed blackberries licorice and Spanish cedar. Full-bodied concentrated and structured. Give it some time.-- 95/ 96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. -JS Wine Spectator.

Good deep red-ruby. Somewhat more evolved aromas of redcurrant roasted coffee and smoked meat. Silky and lush in the mouth but with less intensity and charm than the 96. Seems a bit monolithic today. Tannins come across as slightly dry after the 96. 88(+?) points Stephen Tanzers IWC.
