Comprised of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Merlot 1% Petit Verdot, Chateau Lafite Rothschild 2005 Bordeaux was the fourth consecutive year to have a deficit in rainfall, which allowed the vines to adapt by reducing their leaf area.Progressively cooler weather in the summer days and cool nights allowed good acidity levels to be maintained, resulting in slow steady ripening.

Dark colour with glints of purple giving the wine a bright, lively appearance. The nose is still quite closed but suggests tremendous depth. Aromas of black and red fruit, and cedar, characteristic of Lafite’s wines, then emerge. On the palate, the attack is impressive thanks to a remarkable blend that expresses its full harmony and power in a long, fresh finish.
