Tasting Notes

Vinous – 93

Tasted blind, the 2012 Lafite-Rothschild is a vintage I have not tasted for several years. It has a well-defined nose with slightly leafy black fruit, pencil shavings and cedar. It does not quite deliver the precision of the 2012 Latour tasted alongside, but it is distinctly “Lafite”. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, well balanced with tobacco-tinged black fruit. Elegant and composed, it is not a vintage that goes out to win applause, rather, quietly goes about its business. Give it a couple more years in bottle. Tasted blind in Bordeaux.

Anticipated maturity: 2023-2045

JancisRobinson.com – 17.5

Healthy, glowing crimson. Neat and contained without any flashiness. Classic top claret. But not the sort of wine that would knock the socks off a neophyte. [03/03/2022]

Anticipated maturity: 2022-2040

Robert Parker – 91

The 2012 Lafite Rothschild, representing only 38% of their total production, is a blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and the balance mostly Merlot. It is a very stylish, elegant, yet concentrated Lafite Rothschild with an opaque ruby/purple color, soft well-integrated tannins, nice integrated oak, acidity and alcohol. Lafites’s 2012 reveals good, opaque, ruby/purple color and plenty of lead pencil and blackcurrant fruit. The wine is medium-bodied and should hit its prime 2020-2035. [Robert M. Parker, Jr., 24/03/2015]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035
