Wine Advocate 99 points - The Lafite-Rothschild 2009 is a dark, limpid purple colour. The nose is very closed and so I jabber with Charles Chevalier for ten minutes before returning and…well, not much more…but one can sense the intensity that bubbling under like a smoking volcano: blackberry, vitamin, graphite and a touch of black olive. The palate is medium-bodied but with bold tannins, perhaps unusually expressing more weight than Latour at this juncture although that could change. It has beguiling intensity and focus with great length and persistency, leading to a masculine, grippy finish that says: bugger off and don’t come back for 10-15 years…or else. Exceptionally fine. Tasted November 2011.  (Jan 2012)

Wine Spectator 98 points - This is stunning for its ability to take massively endowed fig, currant paste and crushed plum fruit flavors and harness them with ultrasuave freshly roasted espresso, black tea and ganache notes. A seductive style, long and velvety, with the dense core of black fruit and smoldering iron just waiting and waiting. Best from 2020 through 2040. From France.—J.M. (Jan 11 2012)

Dark ruby color, ripe black currants, violets and vanilla, spicy, oaky scents. The wine has great finesse and a particular softness imparted by the Merlot. It tends to be firm yet delicate and supple, great elegance develops with age.

The vineyard was at one time owned by Alexander de Segur, proprietor of Châteaux Latour and Calon Segur. Lafite became public property in 1794, after the owner (the President of the Parliament of Guyenne) had been guillotined in the Revolution. After changing hands a few more times, the Rothschild family acquired the property when it was put up for auction in 1868 and remain the owners today. The second label of Lafite Rothschild is Carruades de Lafite.

Wine maker notes
70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot. Average age of the vines is 44 years. Replanting of these vines takes place in lots. 222 acres producing 22,000-30,000 cases.
