Beschreibung

- 96-98 Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE, Lisa Perrotti-Brown: "Displaying a deep purple-black color, the 2020 Lafite Rothschild takes a little swirling and coaxing to unlock scents of freshly crushed blackcurrants, boysenberries and spiced plums, followed by emerging nuances of red roses, raspberry preserves, underbrush and unsmoked cigars, with a waft of cedar chest. The medium-bodied palate is an exercise in elegance and finesse, featuring tightly wound layers of red and black berries and loads of mineral sparks, framed by finely grained tannins and well-poised tension, finishing with fantastic length and the most stunning perfume. Magnificent achievement. This 2020 is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot, coming in at 12.8% alcohol and a pH of 3.9."

- 97-99 Punkte WINE ENTHUSIAST, Roger Voss: "Barrel Sample. This is a complete wine, with its layers of fruit and tannin in total harmony. Concentration comes easily backed by a palate that shows salinity, as well as impressive black currant fruits. The wine is certainly destined for long-term aging."

- 95-97 Punkte VINOUS, Antonio Galloni: "The 2020 is a super-classic Lafite-Rothschild of grace and finesse. A reticent introvert, Lafite impresses with its vertical lift and palpable energy. It is a wine of regal bearing that does not feel the need to say much, and yet everything is very clearly there. Bright acids and strong, saline notes come alive in the glass as the long, persistent finish unfolds with remarkable grace. The 2020 is simply exquisite. It's a fabulous showing from the team led by Technical Director Eric Kohler."

- 96-98 Punkte VINOUS, Neal Martin: "The 2020 Lafite-Rothschild is much more intense and complex compared to the Carruades this year. This First Growth bursts from the glass with beautifully defined blackberry and wild strawberry scents laced with sprigs of wild mint and juniper berries. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins that frame the pixelated black fruit. This is quintessential Lafite in that it is not a powerful or immensely structured wine, but rather a First Growth with unerring balance and harmony, one that is unashamedly classic in style. There is just the right amount of dryness on the finish to urge you back for another sip. So Lafite it has its name tattooed onto its DNA. It will begin to soar after 10 years in the cellar."

- 96-98 Punkte FALSTAFF, Peter Moser: "Dunkles Rubingranat, opaker Kern, violette Reflexe, zarte Ockerrandaufhellung. Mit feiner Edelholznote unterlegte schwarze Beeren, tabakiger Touch, Nuancen von Lakritze, reife Johannisbeeren, zart nach Trockengewürzen und Ingwer. Stoffig, reife rote Herzkirschen, etwas Cassis, frischer Säurebogen, gut eingebaute, reife Tannine, saliner Terroirtouch im Abgang, wirkt leichtfüßig und dabei sehr lange anhaftend, ein eleganter Lafite mit großer Entwicklungsperspektive."

- 97 Punkte DECANTER, Jane Anson: "This is pretty much as close to entirely Cabernet Sauvignon as Bordeaux gets (92%) and yet it has an incredibly fine, gentle richness to the tannins. They build up pretty quickly though, so that by the end of the palate you start to feel the closing in and tightening, deftly underscoring how well this will age. The kaleidoscope of flavours and aromatics that Lafite does so well is fully on display, nothing trying too hard, a velvet texture to the tannins where the cassis fruit, earth, crushed stone and graphite is held in from beginning to end. Impressive that even in dry vintages like 2020 with the real concerns over global warming, the top Bordeaux estates can still produce wines of this quality. Drinking Window 2028 – 2046"

- 19 Punkte JANCIS ROBINSON, James Lawther: "92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot. Cask sample.
A very masculine Lafite with a powerful tannic frame (bigger than 2019 and 2018). Deep, intense and stately on the nose with mineral-graphite notes to the fore. Palate rich but with a massive charge of fine-grained tannin and lingering freshness. Enormous length on the finish. Incredible potential."

- 97-99 Punkte JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2020 Château Lafite-Rothschild checks in as 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, and 1% Petit Verdot brought up in roughly 90% or more of new French oak. It's a deep, inky-hued Lafite boasting incredible notes of crème de cassis, lead pencil shavings, graphite, crushed stone, and gravelly earth-like minerality. Full-bodied and beautifully balanced, with terrific purity of fruit, it has ripe tannins, a layered, seamless mouthfeel, and a great, great finish. It should surpass the 2015 and 2017 and be in the same realm as the 2018 and 2019. Despite its richness and depth, it hit just 12.8% alcohol, with an IPT of 72 and a pH of 3.5. It’s going to be just about immortal."

- 99-100 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "Rather ethereal and so refined with finesse, focus and brightness that provides incredible energy and pedigree. It’s full-bodied with ultra fine tannins that go on and on. Superb presence with tannins that melt into the wine. This is 12.8%. I love the wine. Lots of dark fruit and fresh tobacco. Lead pencil, too. 92% cabernet sauvignon, 7% merlot and 1% petit verdot."

- 20 Punkte WEINWISSER: "12.8 %-vol. Erhabenes sehr feingliedriges Bouquet mit Waldhimbeeren, Hagebutten und zarten Graphitnoten. Im zweiten Ansatz Bleistiftmine, Schattenmorellen und heller Tabak. Am konzentrierten Gaumen sehr diskret, ganz leise wie ein Violinkonzert, dicht und tiefgründig, alles in magischer Balance, wie das kommt ist, ein Geheimnis, seidige Textur, reifes Extrakt, auf den Punkt gelesen, kakaoartiges Tanningerüst. Im erhabenen Finale mit Wildkirsche, tiefschürfender Mineralik und royaler Adstringenz. Spiegelt die DNA von Lafite in purer Eleganz wider und endet mit zart salzigem Rückaroma: «Sucre-Salinie- Effekt»! Ein aristokratischer Lafite, erinnert an Jahrgänge in den 90er Jahren. Das ist die DNA von Lafite!"

- 98 Punkte ANDREAS LARSSON: „Exotic and ripe nose, almost sweet fruit with prune, cassis, raspberry, chocolate, violet and a gentle toast underneath. Very dense and powerful palate without heaviness, classically built yet with another dimension of ripeness and purity, chewy and very powdery tannin paired with layers of unctuous dark fruit, a hint of some oak derived butterscotch and roasted coffee notes with a bright fresh backbone and a great persistency.“

- 20 Punkte Rene Gabriels BORDEAUX TOTAL, Andre Kunz: „Hochkonzentriertes, tiefgründiges, komplexes, sensationelles Bouquet, Cassiscreme, schwarze Oliven, Backpflaumen, Feuerstein, Graphit, Black Currant. Dichter, vielschichtiger, kraftvoller, sehr eleganter Gaumen mit dichter, schwarzer Frucht, sehr viel feinem Tannin, konzentrierter, cremiger Struktur, sensationeller Aromatik, sehr langer, dichter, super Abgang mit vielen Rückaromen. 2020 – 2060“
