Intense and noble ruby red in the glass. It gradually opens on the nose, initially offering hints of blackcurrant, ripe cherries, and sour cherries, followed by tobacco, spices, wood, and tar. Balanced, solid, and compact on the palate, dense and well-organized in the tannic structure, long-lasting in persistence, and elegant in the aftertaste.

Ideal for accompanying earthy cuisine, particularly dishes based on red meats, noble poultry, and game. It remains a great wine that can be fully appreciated on its own.

Château Lafite was the first castle purchased by James de Rothschild in 1868; almost a century later, his great-grandson, Baron Edmond de Rothschild, acquired Château Clarke and Château Malmaison, two "Crus Bourgeois" in Listrac and Moulis en Médoc. The buildings, structures, and facilities were restored and expanded, and the "Compagnie Vinicole Baron Edmond de Rothschild" was founded with the aim of producing wines of great quality and elegance. After five generations, with a noble past and a tradition rooted in the land of Bordeaux, the Lafite group crossed the borders of France, arriving in Chile, Argentina, and China, producing wines of excellence and world renown.
