Listing Details

One Very Rare 1.5L Magnum Bottle of the Excellent and Outstanding 1979 Vintage of Chateau Lafite-Rothschild. This 1979 Vintage has been Rated Very Highly, at 92 Points by The Wine Spectator Magazine , and is one of the Seventies Best and Most Developed Vintages. Chateau Lafite-Rothschild is the Famous First Growth in the Pauillac appellation. It is Famous for its Elusive Perfumed Bouquet and its Great Style in the Great years. This 1er Cru Classe property is owned by Baron Eric de Rothschild and is one of the most Renowned in the Medoc. Located in the north of the Pauillac Appellation, Chateau Lafite-Rothschild is also one of the largest Medoc estates, with 95 hectares of vineyards planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (70%), Merlot (20%) and Cabernet Franc (10%). The Vineyards lie on Deep Gravel Beds (up to 5 metres thick) over marl and limestone. Annual production tops 35,000 cases, although a third of this consists of the second wine called Carruades de Lafite. Of all the Medoc Grand Crus, this can be the Most Beguiling and difficult to understand. It is never the Most Powerful, yet, along with Margaux, possesses the most Exquisite Bouquet of any Medoc Wine. It has the Elegance, Balance and Harmony that Epitomises Claret at its Very Best. Here is The Wine Spectator's Review , " 92 out of 100 ........ Fruity , Deep and Firm . Filled with Plum and Cherry . Backed by Youthful , stiff Tannins . Needs Time for Complexity to Develop . Try in 2022. --- Lafite-Rothschild Vertical . " - The Wine Spectator Magazine . This Rare 1979 Magnum Bottle is in Mint Condition and is in Commercial Storage. Thank you for looking.
