Wine Critic Reviews:

A candidate for the wine of the vintage, the 2007 Lafite Rothschild... reveals classic Lafite aromas of graphite, unsmoked cigar tobacco, black currants, cherries, and a hint of truffles. The complex aromatics are followed by a round, medium to full-bodied wine with silky tannins, an overall subtle smoky component, and a rich, round, generous, plump finish. Already evolved and delicious, it should continue to drink well for two decades.

  1. tastes like a dream

    I admit I have been a bit skeptical about tasting this wine at first, but I stumbled upon it during a blind tasting event and I couldn't avoid it. Nor should I have! I would've never found out what I had been missing on! This Rothschild tastes like a dream. It's such a baby, but already so powerful. I can only imagine the future that lies ahead of it. It will be absolutely sublime and unparalleled once it reaches full maturity. And it definitely has strong aging potential.<br/><br/>This is almost pure Cabernet Sauvignon, one of my favorites, so I really can't be impartial here. No matter what my preferences are, this wine is a must-have - at least in my book. If you enjoy fruity wines, plums, dark cherries, and currants, you'll adore this baby. Let it settle and be surprised in the decades to come!

  2. Drinkable and gentle on the palate

    I feel unable to form a complete impression about this Lafite Rothschild because it's still too young. It does show a lot of potential, and it's undoubtedly worthy of its name, but it's really important to let it settle and wait for a few years to give it a proper grade.<br/><br/>For now, I can tell there's much harmony - great acidity, splendid tannins, fantastic texture. Drinkable and gentle on the palate. The nose opens up quite quickly, there are some black currants and black tea. On the palate, you can feel cassis, truffle, lots of sweetness. It's dense, with a good aftertaste. I want to give it another chance in a few more years, I feel like it will blow me away when it's fully mature. But then again, you can never go wrong with a Pauillac. The absolute kind among Cabernet and Merlot blends.
