Château Lafite Rothschild 2007
It is a blend of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, and 1% Petit Verdot. Drink now – 2030.
The 2007 vintage reveals classic Lafite aromas of graphite, unsmoked cigar tobacco, black currants, cherries, and a hint of truffles. The complex aromatics are followed by a round, medium to full-bodied wine with silky tannins, an overall subtle smoky component, and a rich, round, generous, plump finish.
