Chateau Lafite Rothschild 2021

Pauillac
Topwein des Jahrgangs
Zu Lafite Rothschild muss man nicht viel sagen. Nicht erst seitdem die Asiaten großen Gefallen an diesem Chateau gefunden haben, entstehen hier weltweit mit die besten Weine. Und wir stehen nicht alleine da, wenn wir behaupten, dass dies der Wein des Jahrganges ist. Sage und schreibe 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, das ist fast nicht zu glauben. Aber genau das macht den Jahrgang 2021 so spannend, aber auch so speziell. Der Grad an Cabernet-Reife, den Lafite erzielte, ist von einem anderen Stern. Länge, Länge, Länge, so könnte man den Verkostungseindruck zusammenfassen. Diese Präzision, diese Feinheit, diese Energie und Größe, das haben nur ganz wenige Weine. Wir waren persönlich zwei Mal auf dem Chateau und verkosteten gemeinsam mit dem Team um Saskia de Rothschild. Zudem hatten wir, wir berichteten auf Instagram, ein grandioses Mittagessen auf dem Chateau. Ein Muss von einem Wein!

Weinwisser: "Verf√ľhrerisches Parf√ľm nach Griotte und Waldhimbeeren, Iris-Duft, helles Graphit, erkalteter Earl Grey- Tee. Am subtilen Gaumen mit einer Textur wie Samt und Seide, salzigem Extrakt, engmaschigem Tanninger√ľst, ein perfekt geformtem K√∂rper wie Michelangelos David. Aristokratisch, elegant und sharp, erinnert an ‚Äö86 oder ‚Äö88, mit sehr langem nachhallenden Finale, ganz nah an der H√∂chstnote und damit der beste Wein aus Pauillac!"
97-98
Suckling: "Polished and refined with a firm, fine and linear tannin structure. Harmonious. Perfumed violets, roses and subtle licorice. All in balance here, with precise layers of black fruit, minerals and pencil lead. Rather seamless. Firm, yet fine and sleek to the end. Very classy. Fine-velvet texture. 96% cabernet sauvignon, 3% merlot and 1% petit verdot."

Decanter: "Surely a contender for wine of the vintage, certainly on the Left Bank. Vibrant and explosive, what a wine in 2021. Graphite, black chocolate, black pepper and blackcurrant aromas but also with floral edges - so intense! Supple and racy on the palate, this is a firecracker of a Lafite, so much energy and acidity that you get this rush of red and black fruits then the stoney minerality and then the spice. It's sharp and racy with the length that goes on and on. You get it all here but so well delivered, real refinement and elegance in terms of fruit precision and clarity but it's just so energetic and bright. This puts you squarely in Bordeaux with the lively and balanced freshness with these gorgeous powerful and structured Cabernet aspects telling you it's from Pauillac, ending with liquorice, stone, graphite and toasted spice from the one block of old-vine Petit Verdot that went into the blend this year. Vibrant and explosive - an absolute thoroughbred - albeit a young one! Made with 96% Cabernet as opposed to a usual amount between 80-85%. A yield of 33hl/ha. The first year of full organic farming also in 2021."

Falstaff: "Tiefdunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, zarte Randaufhellung. Zarte Edelholzw√ľrze, schwarze Waldbeeren, feines Nougat, frische Orangenzesten, attraktives Bukett. Komplex, straff, rotbeerig unterlegte reife Kirschfrucht, pr√§sente, sehr feine Tannine, die dem Wein L√§nge geben, mineralisch, salzig und gut anhaftend, ein toller Speisenbegleiter, gepr√§gt von Frische, verf√ľgt √ľber Entwicklungspotenzial. Hier kann Lafite sein herausragendes Terroir voll zur Geltung bringen."

Wine Cellar Insider: "Flowers, blackberries, charcoal, cigar box, black currants, spice, cedar, graphite, and tobacco come through on the nose with a bit of coaxing. On the palate, the wine offers a pure expression of red fruits, black cherries, spice, and a touch of orange rind, along with boysenberry, licorice, and red plums on the backend. This is an elegant, regal, classic style of Lafite Rothschild that will age and evolve quite well. The wine is complete from start to finish and was produced by blending 96% Cabernet Sauvignon. 3% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot. 12.6% ABV, 3.9 pH. Drink from 2032-2060."

Wine Enthusiast: "96‚Äď98. Barrel Sample. This is essentially Cabernet Sauvignon, giving beautiful black currant notes that come through in succulent juiciness and a serious core of tannins that are giving the wine a solid backbone. This will push the wine's maturity well into the long-term."

Wine Advocate: "A brilliant wine that shares some similarities with the formidable 1996, the 2021 Lafite Rothschild wafts from the glass with inviting aromas of dark berries, cigar box, loamy soil, black truffle and violets. Medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, it's rich and concentrated, with beautifully powdery tannins, lively acids and a long, saline finish. Of course, this isn't as dramatic as the 2020 or 2019 out of the gates, but the 2021 is a brilliant success in its own right. What's more, its structure and balance mean that it is likely to prove almost immortal. It's a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot, which is one of the all-time highest percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon chez Lafite."
95-97
Galloni: "The 2021 Lafite-Rothschild casts an imposing presence. Black fruit, sage, menthol, licorice and incense give Lafite its dark, almost somber, personality. Cabernet Sauvignon is dialed up, and that very much comes through in the wine's flavor profile and overall feel. The tannins are quite prominent at this stage. In some ways, the 2021 reminds me of the 1996, but with the greater delineation found in today's wines. I can't wait to see how it ages. The 2021 is one of the stars of the Left Bank. Its longevity will ultimately be dictated by storage conditions more than anything having to do with the wine itself."

Neal Martin: "The 2021 Lafite-Rothschild, which was aged in 90% new oak, has a deep, almost opaque hue. This has quite an arresting bouquet with dense blackberry, sous-bois and pencil box scents, quintessential Lafite aromas with nuanced floral scents surfacing with time. The palate is medium-bodied, though with more weight than you would expect given the growing season. The Cabernet Sauvignon imparts graphite and almost briny elements into the aromatic profile. Sapid and classic in style, head winemaker Eric Kohler suggests that it is a return to the style of Lafite-Rothschild of the nineties in terms of freshness. I concur."

Vinum: "Ungemein klassischer, stilvoller Lafite mit herrlich raffiniertem Tannin, grosse Tiefe, Spannkraft und Länge."

Dunnuck: "I loved the Grand Vin 2021 Ch√Ęteau Lafite-Rothschild, and if anyone is going to excel in a cooler, elegant vintage like 2021, it will be Ch√Ęteau Lafite. Based on 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Merlot, and 1% Petit Verdot, is has a brilliant perfume of pure cr√®me de cassis, spring flowers, graphite, gravelly earth, and sandalwood, which will turn toward more classic Lafite cedar pencil with age. Medium-bodied on the palate, it has supple, elegant, yet substantial tannins, great balance, and a beautiful finish. Like most wines from this estate, it has a classy, regal, incredibly impressive style."
94-96
Perroti-Brown: "The 2021 Lafite Rothschild is a blend of 96% CS, 3% Merlot, and 1% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it needs a lot of swirling to shake loose notions of ripe blackcurrants, fresh blackberries, and black raspberries, followed by hints of cedar, graphite, cloves, and cast-iron pan with a waft of roses. Light to medium-bodied, the palate delivers intensely perfumed black fruits with a floral and herbal undercurrent textured by firm, finely grained tannins, and featuring well-integrated acidity, finishing on a lingering fragrant earth note. This should be one of the most long-lived wines of the vintage, with cellaring potential of 40+ years. Yields came in at 33 hl/ha and the wine has a pH of 3.9."
