Lafite Rothschild 1991

Chateau Lafite Rothschild

28

Lafite's light-bodied 1991 possesses moderate ruby color, a solid innercore of fruit, as well as potentially excessive tannin for its size and constitution. The wine exhibits Lafite's subtle personality with a leafy, tobacco, lead pencil nose intertwined with sweet aromas of cassis. Dry, austere, and lacking length, it should turn out to be a good representation of Lafite-Rothschild in this so-so year.

Chateau Lafite Rothschild

Chateau Lafite Rothschild is one of the most famous and prestigious wine producing estates in the world. It is based in the Medoc, on the left bank of the Gironde River, situated in Bordeaux France, and has been under the ownership of the wealthy Rothschild family since the 19th century.

The fine wine Lafite Rothschild was one of the first to attain “first growth” status in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification, as it was a consistent producer of the world’s most expensive and highly rated red Bordeaux wines.

The name “Lafite” is derived from a Gascon term “la hite” signifying a small hill. Chateau Lafite Rothschild also produce a second wine in addition to their first growth, called Carruades de Lafite.
