Lafite Rothschild

Background

Lafite Rothschild is, without a doubt, one of the most powerful brands in the wine world. Heralded as the king among kings, this First Growth enjoys a global reputation for quality and prestige and was even purchased by Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States. With its vinegrowing history going back centuries, the property passed from the Segur family into the Rothschild family before coming into the hands of Baron James d’Rothschild in 1868.

The wine itself is hugely impressive in every respect. It is one of the longest lived still wines, hugely complex when mature, and the scores it receives are almost unparalleled. The prices it fetches are high due to the mammoth global demand.

Charles Chevalier now manages this estate and production quality is frighteningly consistent when one considers upwards of 18,000 cases are produced each year. It should also be noted that, due to unrivalled demand in emerging markets, Lafite proves itself as an astute investment in even the lesser vintages.
