Deep ruby red color. Expressive nose with fruity aromas of prunes, cherries and ripe raspberries followed by notes of tobacco, leather, and graphite. Ageing in French oak barrels gives the wine nice toasty notes that blend to perfection with rose and gooseberry notes and hints of hazelnuts and cinnamon. The broad range of plump tannins from the different varieties in this blend help to create a unique mouthfeel of outstanding complexity.

A wine for every day, for a dinner with friends, or a glass in front of the fire...Tasting Notes: Colour: Deep crimson.

made from grapes grown in Lafite Rothschild's own vineyards
 A major appellation in the Médoc, Pauillac benefits from an exceptional terroir characterized by gravelly hilltops on a clay subsoil which ensures natural drainage and encourages the vines to develop deep roots: these are the perfect conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines are made with the same attention to detail as for the Grand Vin. 

Tasting Notes: Colour: purple with good intensity, Nose: very expressive, refined and elegant, combining fresh, mentholated notes with toasted and spicy aromas, Palate: generous and powerful, with good tannic structure and a long fresh, liquoricey finish. A classic, distinguished Pauillac. Blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot
