Pauillac-Château Lafite Rothschild 2012

The domain

First among the first in the history of classified growths in 1855 from Bordeaux, the Château Lafite Rothschild is a lord on his grave lands. Bearer of a long wine-growing tradition initiated in 1620, it has asserted itself over the centuries as a true standard of the appellation. Pauillac on the Left Bank of the region of Bordeaux.

Because great wines are only born in great terroirs, Château Lafite Rothschild benefits from an exceptional location with a vineyard divided into three large areas. From the hillsides that surround the Château to the Carruades plateau to the west and a plot in the neighboring town of Saint-Estèphe, Château Lafite Rothschild oversees a total of 112 ha of vines planted on soils of fine and deep gravel with sand in surface while the limestone subsoil provides excellent drainage.
