2011 Lafite Rothschild, Pauillac (1.5L)

SKU #1373966 96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The wine shows the power typical of a Lafite but within the context of the fruity 2011 vintage. The immensely dense tannic structure gives the wine a solid feel that is lifted by so much ripe black currant and berry fruits. At the back, the wine has a more brooding, dark character that suggests great aging potential. Drink this wine from 2019. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2011 Lafite-Rothschild is a blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot with an alcohol level of 12.6%. It has wonderful purity on the nose with blackberry, cassis, raspberry, a touch of graphite and an attractive floral note. It is feminine and beguiling. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins on the entry, crisp acidity, very harmonious and alluring with blackberry, raspberry and a saline touch towards the long caressing finish. It is a more sensual Lafite that I was expecting, with great persistency and poise. Tasted April 2012. (NM) Inner quote mark (5/2012)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Love the nose on this, with sweet tobacco, delicate currant, cedar and blackberry. Full body with integrated tannins and a juicy, fruity, subtle finish. The texture to this wine is beautiful. Better than I remember from barrel. Try in 2019. Inner quote mark (2/2014)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This delivers pronounced tobacco and bay leaf notes up front, with a core of steeped plum and currant fruit and a fleshy edge through the charcoal-lined finish. There's some serious buried minerality, which should emerge with cellaring. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2014)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full ruby-purple; this really stains the glass. Highly expressive aromas of blackberry, crushed strawberry, flint, cedar, pepper and herbs. Rich and bright in the mouth, with pungent minerality and a cedary note keeping the dark and red fruit flavors fresh. The long finish features lovely floral lift and substantial but ripe tannins. This strikes me as a very successful Lafite. (ID) 92+ Inner quote mark (8/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Inky black core. Definite herbaceous aroma of cassis leaf, cedary cassis. Pretty leafy on the palate too but adds freshness. Cabernet Franc-like character although I believe the blend is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot. Chalky-dry tannins. A bit drying on the finish but has leafy elegance. (JH) Inner quote mark (2/2015)
