This year’s Annual Bordeaux Tasting will highlight an array of vintages from the iconic Château Lafite Rothschild. The Lafite name is synonymous with the highest level of Bordeaux excellence, “comparable to the ambrosia of the gods of Olympus,” (Maréchal de Richelieu, 1755). By the time it was awarded First Growth status in 1855, Lafite had already established a century’s worth of notoriety, known by many as “The King’s Wine.” In the years since, the Château has not fallen short of this standard, consistently producing what is considered by many as Bordeaux’s finest. Under the guidance of the Barons de Rothschild, Lafite has married a tradition of excellence with contemporary winemaking technology to preserve and enhance the estate’s legacy.

This event presents a rare opportunity to compare vintages from this renowned First Growth estate as well as the Château’s second wine, Carruades de Lafite, and selections from Châteaux Duhart-Milon, L’Evangile, and Rieussec, which fall under the Domaines Barons de Rothschild and are guided by “The Lafite Spirit.” The tasting will feature thirteen vintages of Lafite, including the acclaimed 1982, 1990, 2000, 2010, and 2015. Join us in celebrating and tasting an unparalleled caliber of Bordeaux.

The evening will include the following wines:

Chateau Lafite Rothschild: 1982, 1986, 1988, 1990, 1995, 1999, 2000, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2010, 2011, 2015
