Château Lafite Rothschild Description
Very early tasting of the vintage reveals a wine somewhat less opulent that its 2000 brother, but nonetheless elegant and harmonious, with powerful and ripe tannins, a pure fruity aroma and a satisfying finish.

The 2001 Lafite Rothschild?s deep, saturated plum/purple color is accompanied by lead pencil liqueur-like notes intermixed with sweet red and black currants, plums, and cedar. This blend of 86.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13.5% Merlot is a classic example of Lafite. Extremely elegant, medium-bodied, with intense concentration, richness, and sweet tannin, it appears to be on a rapid evolutionary track, at least in comparison to recent Lafite vintages that have been far more backward and powerful. The classy 2001 should be at its finest between 2007-2020.
