Bordeaux 2019: Château Lafite Rothschild, Duhart Milon and L’Evangile
05 June 2020

If we thought the stars had aligned for the new team at Lafite with their exceptional 2018, this year it feels like they’ve crafted something from the very cosmos itself. We’re going out on a limb here, but it might just be the best young Lafite we’ve ever tasted. In his second year at the helm, Jean-Guillaume Prats has overseen the creation of a Grand Vin that should go down in history - and not just because of the events surrounding its release.

Our encounter with the Lafite wines took place at Waddesdon Manor on Tuesday, tasting samples which were jetted in the night before. The conditions could not have been more perfect. In a cool, dark, stone-walled room we lifted Lafite to our noses and what emerged was a perfume of such nobility that it was hard to put down. While demure at first (as is so often the case with this most erudite of First Growths), it wasn’t long before the fine weave of aromatics relaxed enough to reveal a magnificent, compelling, quintessentially Pauillac, aromatic complexity.
