chateau lafite rothschild

One of Bordeaux’s most famous estates is Château Lafite-Rothschild, owned by members of the Rothschild family since the 19th century. The name Lafite comes from the Gascon term "la hite", meaning "small hill". It is a consistent producer of one of the world's finest and most valuable wines.

The vineyard is one of the largest in the Médoc at 107 hectares and produces around 35,000 cases annually. Its vines are around 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, whereas the final blend of Lafite Rothschild is between 80% and 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% and 20% Merlot, and up to 3% Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Occasionally exceptions are made, such as the 1961 vintage which was 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
