2015 Lafite Rothschild Magnums, Very Sharp Pricing, "Elegance with power" (JS)

With the best part of a decade behind it now, Lafite Rothschild’s 2015 vintage is starting to find its feet. Indeed the Wine Advocate’s long drinking window begins this year. Therefore we are pleased to offer – at an extremely inviting price – a significant parcel of magnums today.


Large formats of the 2015 are already hard to come by, in fact there’s only a handful of listings globally, making this 90-mag parcel very interesting.

  • “this is a masterpiece of diligence in the vineyards, careful selection and very clever crafting—bravo!” 96+pts Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW


These cases are coming to us direct from Bordeaux, having never left the region.


2015 Lafite Rothschild

£2,875 per case of magnums (3x150cl) in bond – 30 cases available

96+ points Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW (Wine Advocate)

The deep garnet-purple shaded 2015 Lafite Rothschild is blended of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Merlot and was matured for 20 months in new oak barrels from Tonnellerie des Domaines (their own cooperage). It is still sporting a lot of cedar at this nascent stage with a vibrant core of black raspberries, red currants and crushed plums plus touches of cigar boxes, violets and underbrush with a waft of tilled loam. Medium-bodied and elegantly styled with wonderful freshness and depth, it is compellingly earthy/minerally in the mouth with a frame of seductively silky yet very firm tannins and culminating in a very long, racy and pure finish. Boasting spectacular finesse and packed with nuances, clearly, given some of the challenges here in 2015, this is a masterpiece of diligence in the vineyards, careful selection and very clever crafting—bravo! Drink 2024-2045. Tasted Feb 2018.
